    Pros

    Great Medical Benefits, some of the staff is very nice and helpful when necessary to coworkers, the services provided to the public are very valuable.

    Cons

    Corporate Leadership in our area needs some better mgt, and understand what the staff actually does on a daily basis. The pay is very low paying jobs in my area. The compensation is not equal to the lowest pay statically with Labor market trends.

    Advice to Management

    Consider employee pay rates, value the hard working employees and allow for incentives and raises for jobs done well and employee loyalty should be considered and not favoritism. Staff needs more support from Upper mgt. & Moral is always low because some managers are unaware that staff don't respect them due to their behavior..

    I worked at CareerSource Florida full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work. Health benefit stipend. Federal holidays off with pay.

    Cons

    Very political environment. Lots of nepotism and favoritism. No career advancement. Managers have no real management experience and belittle employees. For an organization that is supposed to help people - all management really cares about is the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing for the people you serve including employees. Quick and easy shouldn't be a "best practice".

    I have been working at CareerSource Florida full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They used to have a professional development person that they fired like they fired many other awesome staff members-- when she was here we used to get training which was good for those of us looking for other jobs. Pay is slightly higher than comparable work at similar organizations.

    Cons

    They change policies one day do it this way, one day do it that way. Senior managers (C-level) are liars. You get fired for no reason, unless you are in the right click. Same rules do not apply evenly, again, depends on who your friends are. The do not promote from within. They promise jobs to people then hire an outsider. ZERO job security.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all senior leadership. Clear the board. Start over. The CAO is a horrible person, the CEO is an elitist who is out of touch with staff. She is too busy cruising the world to run the organization. The CAO runs the organization, with her degree fake degree.

    Great summer employment especially if you are teacher .

Good way to meet potential employers as well. Great part-time job.

    Workspace is crowded when all team members in office. Sometimes administrative staff can be a bit brusque/abrupt with in-person communication .

    I, myself, represent a brand, an inspirational image, and I'm a direct reflection of all great role models leadership before me. I embody the meanings of self - seek, self - challenge, and self- improvement, as well as being a collaborative team player. I've served my country in the Marine Corps, and now I am currently prepared and ready to serve outside of it. I attend HCC Dale Mabry Campus as a full - time student in the EMS course in order to pursue a career as a FireFighter.
