    I worked at NYC Department of Human Resource Administration for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone were so nice that the biggest argument I got into was who's holding the door for who, very quiet work environment, everyone I worked with were extremely helpful and felt passionate about their work, as an intern expect to learn a lot of things that you will be using for the rest of your career, plenty of restaurants in and around the building, prime commute location, lateness was never an issue, you get plenty of personal and sick time to use, never had an issue with changing work hours or having to leave to do something, stable work place

    Cons

    Hiring freeze (all posted jobs are already filled before even posting them by converting consultants/interns into employees so it's hard to land a job here)

    I worked at NYC Department of Human Resource Administration

    Pros

    Good work life balance. The work environment is collegial, everyone was friendly. I was encouraged to consider applying to open positions as they were posted.

    Cons

    The work can get repetitive and boring at times, you have to have initiative to seek out new opportunities. The offices were ugly.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at NYC Department of Human Resource Administration full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    . As such a large agency, a lot of agency policies and procedures are available via agency intranet, etc. It is up to the employee to pursue to know and understand the agency rules and employee rights, etc. . If management likes you, there is room for job stability and growth. . The seasoned staff are more aware of how to "go along to get along", because they've seen a lot, etc.

    Cons

    1) The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) Program is insane from top down. If starting at this agency/ program as a probationary staff (civil service) it is very risky. Ultimately your job depends if your supervisor/director likes you or not. 2) Too many tasks expected for level of job title/ compensation, especially for supervisors. Work overload given as normal practice. Can lead to stress, low morale, and negativity in the workplace environment. 3) Stressful work environment, with unrealistic expectations from upper management (i.e. project timeframes). 4) Disconnect between knowledge of agency commissioner and executive directors (i.e. black n white view), and how the work really goes (complex cases, grey areas).

    Advice to Management

    Investigate OCSE program for EEO violations and rampant psychological abuse as a top down encouraged practice/ strategy to eliminate undesirable/uncooperative staff.

    I have been working at NYC Department of Human Resource Administration full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The work is not so stressing on the mind. It does get tedious sometimes, but every once in a while there are changes and sometimes training on new methods.

    Cons

    The work environment can get tense and stressful because of pure nonsense and lots of drama that most of the time does not really pertain to work. There is a lot of favoritism, so be careful what you say. As far as job grow, there is very little.

    Advice to Management

    Some of you need to think more before you react. Do not be so quick to blame workers for something they did not do, get the facts first then come up with a reasonable decision.
