    I have been working at New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    You're working with a lot of very intelligent individuals, some with masters degrees, PhD, and doctorates. There are also a lot of growth opportunity within each bureau. People are very competitive which provide a sweet challenge to your daily work life.

    Cons

    You only 12 vacation days, and 12 sick days total each year and it accumulates. I guess it does increase over time. You can get pretty comfortable and forget that there are other opportunities out there.

  2. "Job satisfaction"

      Pros

      The DOHMH prides itself on taking progressive stances on working to affect the health and well-being of New Yorkers. Good opportunities for growth and finding a work group that you fit in with.

      Cons

      Some divisions have more bureaucratic than others--giving some the impression that they are actually working against the agency's interest. Some of the red tape can be infuriating.

        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

        I worked at New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        The mission of the organization; the resources and services the bureau provides to New Yorkers across the five (5) borough.

        Cons

        It wasn't what I expected -- I was disappointed by the level of immaturity and incompetence I witnessed by some of the staff within the bureau during my time there. I went in with the highest regard for the organization/bureau, but came with unarguable discontent.
