Pros

Holidays, insurance is paid for 100%, good retirement(if you can make it that long)

Cons

Unrealistic work expectations, State office does not care about you at all, not considered a human, only a number. Everything you do is micromanaged, best effort is not enough. Workers are punished for the client’s failure to provide requested information. Toxic culture from the commissioner on down

Advice to Management

This advice is for regional directors on up. Listen to your employees. Show some compassion. Understand that we are overworked and underpaid. That we are your greatest resource and we deserve some respect and to be treated as human beings and not robots. Program managers on up are full of incompetent people who haven’t worked cases for 20 years and make the big bucks meanwhile frontline workers get the crumbs. Toxic culture, but it will never change because those with the power to do it are happy doing minimal work and raking in the money of the backs of workers and clerks. SAD!

Pros

Working for the public sector has its perks such as extensive PTO and retirement plans.

Cons

Pay is not competitive with the market and it boggles the mind how much of taxpayer dollars are wasted because of poor processes, under-qualified employees and red-tape, political and bureaucratic environment.

Advice to Management

Stop playing games for power and actually make some decisions and move forward with improvements.
