I worked at Housing Opportunities Commission full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

HOC was a good place to work for 8 years. The pay is less than the private market but the benefits make up the difference.

Cons

In 2012 the Commission decided to go in a new direction and brought in an Executive Director who gut the agency to save money.

    I have been working at Housing Opportunities Commission full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stability in State Gov't position, convenient locations, good people to work with depending your department, Ability to work a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Rude people, no raise in the last 3 yrs, a union that does nothing for you, but takes your money biweekly. While they offer tuition reimbursement there is no opportunity for training, or promotions unless someone leaves you can then advance into their space.

    Advice to Management

    Value workers, give training and raises.
