    I have been working at State of Nebraska part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work for one Judge on the Judge's schedule

    Being that you work for one judge, it can get boring as the years go by.

    Pray you have a decent Judge

    I have been working at State of Nebraska full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great job for those who have just graduated or are looking for something until you find the next thing.

    Cons

    Boring. The work is repetitive and clients are typically unappreciative. The workplace is dreadful. Cockroaches and heating/air conditioning issues are typical in many offices.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees well being. Give them some room to breathe. Pay people according to their skill sets and length of service time. It's frustrating when older workers make the same as brand new people.

    Pros

    benefits are great

    managers rely very heavily on making everyone into a martyr. working unpaid overtime, everything for the cause with no appreciation for personal boundaries or passions

    Advice to Management

    satisfaction can not pay the mprtage. annual .0.12% cost of living raises don't keep quality people around.

    I have been working at State of Nebraska full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people working here who are smart, hard working, effective communicators and leaders, whether they are actually in a true leadership role or not. Because such quality folks are in the minority, you may have to look hard to find them and try to apply for a position in their area in order to work with them or under them, thus becoming a better employee under their direction and influence. There is opportunity here for many young folks with a great work ethic. The new CEO appears to be GREAT and exactly what this dept. needs in order to change.

    Cons

    Too many people coasting to retirement and have gotten away with it for years. Too many get promoted just because they have knowledge and been there for a long time. Many of these folks have antiquated ways, are poor communicators, dishonest, and move too slow on projects. Bad folks never get fired even when they keep violating state and federal laws, misuse funds, and are out "ill" for weeks at a time every year during the busy season. Employee intranet always has photos of employees at other offices dressed as clowns, animals, witches, for every month of the year. It is impossible to take this place seriously when there are so many clowns--even literal clowns. Most of the major issues are caused by baby boomers. After they retire, things should improve and become more professional and more like a business in the private sector. Dress code is NEVER enforced--ever!

    Advice to Management

    Stop encouraging the DHHS offices throughout the state to have employees dress up as animals, clowns, witches, corncobs, etc. and posting the pics online like we are supposed to be proud those folks are part of our big family Its shameful. New CEO needs to make the dept. get back to the basics of how a business should be run. Don't leave dress code "up to the managers" in each area as always stated, because most managers at DHHS don't want to cause conflict and they themselves want to dress down rather than dress up

    Pros

    There is always work to do and there are clear expectations

    Cons

    Often you are overworked and treated like a number rather than an individual with skills and talents

    Advice to Management

    Hire good leaders that can develop and support their staff, not just someone who has been there the longest.

    I have been working at State of Nebraska full-time

    Pros

    Helping others with applying for benefits. Making a difference in people's lives. Benefits. Overtime comes around several times a year. That's about our for any pros regarding the position.

    Cons

    Management likes to micro manage. Administrators don't have a clue on how to treat employees. Moral is low and turnover is high. All administrators care about is stats, not whether cases are done correctly. No raises based on performance. If a raise is given, the increase to insurance will eat up that raise and then some. No respect for the job we do.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like adults and with respect. Actually listen to the employees on what does and doesn't work. The employees are the ones actually talking to the clients.
