    I worked at FEGS Health & Human Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great mission. Great concept in supplying social services in NY state. Always seeking to branch out to new contracts.

    Cons

    Unstable work environment. Unprofessional upper management. No respect for employees. Too many internal politics. Promotions and salary increases only supplied to upper management NOT to hard working employees. Too much of "facing the other direction" when complaints were filed about such issues. HR should of had more realistic Exit interviews to approach these matters instead of just "paper exit interview forms to complete" when resigning.

    Advice to Management

    Should respect all employees equally. Should only promote or hire managers with experience instead of "they like to person on a personal level so lets promote them into a role just because."
