I worked at NY Health Department as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Lots of offices, lots of experienced people. Flexibility to move between bureaus/departments if desired. Involved in a lot of current research, and staff has a lot of opportunities to attend training and participate in other types of professional development.

Cons

Parking is awful at their Albany, NY location and the waiting list for parking is very long. The building is secured so it can take longer to get up to your office after fire drills or a lunch time. Approval for projects has to go through so many levels because it is a government agency.

    Recognize talent and get rid of employees who are dead weight, not reliable etc.
