    I worked at Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The supervision was friendly and nice to work with. Generally understanding. It is a state position, and therefore had good benefits.

    Cons

    Low salary. Negative attitudes of coworkers. Supervision micromanages and everything is about the numbers and not focused enough on the customers themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salary. Salary is very low for the amount of work expected.

    I worked at Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good health insurance.
    My supervisor Jean Ellen Schulik is one of the best you can have (which is my luck).
    Good work and life balance. Great people.
    Easy stuff (which can be viewed good or bad, depending on personal preference)

    Cons

    Easy stuff (which can be viewed good or bad, depending on personal preference). I felt like being in the 20th century.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, wonderful people to work with, great work life balance. OIG really listens to feedback of staff.

    Cons

    Low pay and high retirement mandatory participation, which cuts into already low salary. Limited to upward mobility and raises.

    Pros

    I enjoy my job and the people with whom I work. Tom Betlach is the smartest Director ever. And I've worked for a lot of them. There are new challenges every day.
    You cannot beat state benefits.

    Cons

    The only way to get a raise is to get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate that my division leaders are always looking for ways we can be better. Lean has highlighted that, but I think they've always been doing that.

    I have been working at Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employer (state) health insurance with options

    Cons

    Lack of integrity. Good-ol' girls club. Back door antics for the the inspector general to put her friends where she wants them--promotions, contract employees, special treatment for her personal baby sitter. Management by threat constantly. HR representatives are bias toward management instead of neutral as they should be. The Director never talks to any other level of employee except the IG so he is uninformed about the antics. Or he does knows.

    Advice to Management

    Use the current IG's tactic of removing people she does not like to replace them with people she does like. Except use this rule: The replacements need to have demonstrated integrity and management experience. This should be the "likeable" quality. Stop attacking the whistle blowers.
