    Social Services Worker - DHHS

    Social Services Worker Trainee (Former Employee)
    Scottsbluff, NE

    ProsWonderful environment, great staff, in-depth policy training. Help is almost always available if you have a question.

    Benefits are fantastic, pay is decent, you have a good amount of freedom and mistakes are addressed constructively with positive feedback. It's a low-stress environment and overall just a nice place to work.

    ConsSometimes policy learned in training conflicts with policy used in actual work and can create challenges -- but those are usually quickly resolved thanks to helpful supervisory staff and seasoned workers.

    Some people also remarked about there being "too many chiefs". Sometimes each team will have a different approach to something than another team -- you get used to it though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    secure employment, not always leading edge technology

    Senior Applications Developer (Current Employee)
    Lincoln, NE

    ProsDedicated co-workers, stable environment, good work/life balance, get to work on big problems and see how things work, fairly big projects in terms of dollar amounts.

    ConsUnderstaffed, average pay, cubicles not offices, inertia to investigate or adopt new technologies, mild government bureaucracy, retirement choices could be a little better since the pay doesn't match private industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake smokers and unhealthy people pay more for their health care. Provide either more matching funds or raise the cap on 401K contributions. Yearly cost of living raises aren't enough to match inflation rate.

    Great Place to work and lots of awesome people

    Energy Technical Advisor (Former Employee)
    Lincoln, NE

    ProsAwesome hours eight am to five pm
    Great experience learning about federally funded grants and all of the strings attached.
    Management was laid back.
    The state offers tuition reimbursement, and provides most of the necessary reference material such as code books and standards.
    The position required minimal travel less than ten percent, most travel was for training or site inspections.

    ConsIt would be great is they offered flex time,

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Nebraska Vocational Rehabilitation - Thumbs Down

    Administrative (Current Employee)
    Lincoln, NE

    ProsLocated in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska,

    ConsPoorly organized and no leadership from the top. Not open with employees, limited transparency on operations. No room for career development. Not a good environment for experienced professionals. Jobs here are for not ready for prime time players or someone who is looking for an inbetween job before they find a good job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont' set the expectations of portential employees so high, when you don't offer room for growth or recognize professionalism.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
