    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros to working at MDHHS.

    Cons

    There is a reason that MDHHS has such a high turnover rate. Most employees do not stay longer than a year. Management assigns high caseloads which makes it impossible for you to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your clients, and kids assigned to you. There are a lot of late nights which means there is no work-life balance. Most employees are on anti-depressants and simply hate their jobs. MDHHS needs to undergo massive restructuring to effectively provide equitable service to the community.
