    Pros

    The best reason for working with the State of Ohio is the population I work with which is MR/DD.

    Cons

    The downside to working with the State of Ohio is that they really do not listen to staff suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    Some advice I would give management is to listen to your staff they know the clients better than you do because they work with the clients everyday all day.

    Pros

    You are paid at a fair rate for what we do. The step increases get you to a great rate of pay.

    Cons

    Outside of Columbus there you have to push for development and training. Most of it is on your own time. There is no succession planning for your career.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is very motivated and wants to be lead to become a supervisor or go into management help them develope a succession plan for the next 2 years of their career. Don't develope a leadership team and never follow through for those who are craving learning and training.

    Benefits, pension, accrual of time.

    Cons

    Politics involved in attempting to promote. If you're not in the "network," you're going nowhere fast!

    Advice to Management

    Try being a leader and listen to employee complaints instead of being lost in your ego.
