    I worked at Louisiana Department Of Health And Hospitals (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close-knit group, pleasant atmosphere, some really nice clients, feeling of accomplishment with a job well-done, great benefits, flexible hours

    Cons

    I really can't think of many downsides. I think the cons here are more personality conflicts and the potential for pettiness that can arise from time to time. I always got along with the people in my office, which comes naturally for me. I can easily remove myself from participating in negative situations when necessary. I've found that it takes considerable effort to argue and not get along, both of which can be exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    I'm eager to learn, but can only be responsible for what I'm taught. I'm willing to learn anything I need to in order to perform my job. 😊

    Pros

    The job is simple and workload is very light.

    Managers are at best incompetent and at worst actively vindictive. I suspect the latter.

    Treat all of your employees well, not just your friends.

    I have been working at Louisiana Department Of Health And Hospitals full-time

    Pros

    Good starting pay for many as program monitor/manager series is pretty high up on the GS ladder
    Most offices offer excellent work life balance such as work from home and/or flexible work schedules including four tens
    Nice building and physical environment; good location
    Good co-workers - despite everything most people are dedicated and cheerful

    Cons

    Little to no raises
    Extremely top heavy with managers making jaw-dropping salaries
    Constant threats of budget cuts and lay offs
    Forced to do physical labor at medical shelters during hurricanes

    Advice to Management

    Focus on ways to make pay more equitable; promote from within; stop playing favorites; stop laying off lower level staff while your salary rivals that of a surgeon; keep office transparent and lines of communication open.
