Pros

HHS offers great training opportunities and has started working hard to make sure workers are trained before they get cases dumped on them. You also get state government benefits (health insurance, retirement plans etc) - the benefits can't be beat in the private sector. There are lots of opportunities to move up (or move to a different department) - HHS also has offices all over the state, so if necessary you can move towns and keep a similar job title.

Cons

Case loads are really high, and when you're doing this kind of work its hard to leave it at 5pm and go home....if you have a heart for the work you're doing, you'll end up putting in a lot more than 40 hours per week. Some workers are require to take on-call, in addition to regular working hours. Expecations from management are sometimes unrealistic, especially given the high caseloads. Management seems to tell you what needs done w/o helping you figure out realistically how to get it done. (i.e. you will see all the kids on your caseload this month, you will get all your documentation done, and you will not work overtime b/c the department doesn't want to pay for it)

Advice to Management

Please recognize how many cases I have and be realistic in your expecations. Help me prioritize to determine what needs done first, and what can slide until case loads are more manageable.
