    Pros

    During training it's pretty easy money

    Cons

    After training you're pretty much working for crumbs. If you are willing to work cases and conduct interviews all day for less than 30,000 be my guest. It's a HIGH turnover for that reason.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing they can do.

    Pros

    The pros for working is the home work balance due to additional state holidays

    Cons

    The cons for working at HHSC is that the state government bureaucracy gets in the way of progress, which costs taxpayers money.

    Advice to Management

    Out with the old way of thinking and come in with the 21st century way of serving the taxpayer and promoting their workers efforts.

    Pros

    Health Benefits, Retirement, Job Security, Life Insurance

    Cons

    No room for Salary Negotiation if a New State Employee, Overworked, Underpaid, Public Bullying-Humiliation-Criticism from Supervisor, Favoritism, Stressful, High Turnover, New training for more work-No extra pay. Workplace Bullying Seems to be acceptable. If you do report it, you will be seen as the person in the wrong or the person in the wrong will attempt to portray you as insecure. The Supervisor will call other workers into office to make aware of claims made, in an effort to get others to be dishonest. Confidentiality seems irrelevant, but I guess it has to be breached if someone's job is in jeopardy. Occurrences also don't serve any recollection, but some do that can possibly avoid implications. Delivery methods have been the same on consistent basis.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat all workers with dignity and respect, as it states in workplace policy handbook. Constructive criticism is fine, but in a way where the worker does not feel humiliated or belittled, followed by condescending comments on ongoing occassions.

    Pros

    Decent Hours, All Holidays off, Flexible hours for education, decent training, opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Managers are all about status and cliche's, sexual assault on employees is tolerated and they won't fire people for it. Bullying is allowed, they don't follow up on any formal complaints.
