    I have been working at NY Insurance Fund full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    benefits are way above average,pay is decent; work is not difficult; due to civil service chances of getting fired even due to incompetence are very, very small.

    Cons

    workload is very heavy; most supervisors are weak and got their jobs due to the longevity. Upper management is clueless. You never hear any praise here, even a small "nice job."

    Advice to Management

    You as well as most of the management need Basic Management Skills. Recognize employees who do a good job. Develop some social skills. Stop promoting people based ONLY on seniority. Your trend of promoting people who only "write up" employees is very noticeable.

    I have been working at NY Insurance Fund full-time

    Pros

    The job offers good medical benefits, a slightly flexible schedule and stability

    Cons

    A lot of micromanagement goes on here, not a lot of room for advancement and raises come very slowly

    Advice to Management

    Salaries should be more on line with private companies to keep employees, especially the younger generation. Other benefits I'd recommend are paid maternity leave, bereavement pay & the ability to work from home

    Salary- it's not sufficient enough, especially as a Trainee

    I have been working at NY Insurance Fund full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and PTO.

    Cons

    understaffed, management cares more about why you were not at your desk for five minutes rather than the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Since there are no bonuses , how about some words of positive reinforcement rather than always threatening to write us up"

    energize and pay more attention to work staff. Take more steps to make sure that all departments know more about the work done by other departments.

    I have been working at NY Insurance Fund full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, decent salary if in the right position, relative stability, decent location, great work/life balance, friendly co-workers overall

    Cons

    The employees are disgustingly unattractive, many of them have intense, evident psychological troubles, you can hit the ceiling as far as salary is concerned fairly quickly (though that's par for the course for many government employers), people in "diversity" functions are recognized by management far more than those who actually contribute to the business
