      Management incompetence and bad training

      Pros

      Descent salary, good benefits, great working hours, holidays and day off.

      Cons

      The evaluation of employee in trial services is no fair. An HSS3 they evaluate by accuracy, that means the HSS4, an other union coworker evaluate a supervise your job. Hello SEiU a union member can't supervise other Union Member. HSS4 is looking for management interests no for an Union Member. If you are HSS1 you will be evaluate by your capacity of be a great brown nose. You don't have preoccupation about accuracy of error. That means they verify your work and depend if you were trained in the area you will get an error. If you are smart and have new ideas, KEEP QUIET, management don't like new ideas, you will be a shadow and they start calling you trouble maker. In WCPC, management don't know nothing about how system works so they delegate to HSS4 all management responsibility. So, a union member will be your hangman. Now they are training new people all time, fired without compassion and humanity, discriminate with old employees, and ironic with Latin employee.

      The DHS is stifling, stressful and does not care about its employees.

      Pros

      The benefits are good. Some of the other employees are friendly, though many don't hold up their end of the work. It feels good to help many of the clients who come through the doors, though some are crazy and even dangerous. There are positions within the state that are better than others--I was only an HSS1 and then an HSS3 and both those positions were difficult and felt relentless.

      Cons

      The management is completely top down--they don't respect the employees and treat them poorly. The computer systems are outdated and difficult. The culture is old-school--they pretend to be doing all this cutting edge updating, but basically, the job is a grind and wears people down.

      Pros

      The benefits are good and there is the opportunity to help others.

      Cons

      Some of the politics can get in the way of serving the community the way they should be served. Sometimes workers can misuse their power and use a top-down approach which is very frustrating to work with when you're in the job to serve others.

      Pros

      Fairly comparable pay and good benefits

      Cons

      There is an indescribable corruption among upper management and within HR. If you complain about harassment or discrimination, chances are you will find yourself being investigated; particularly if you're a woman. There are countless stories of conveniently timed investigations following a complaint of unlawful activity, and that person who complained finds themselves fired, or forced to quit. HR needs to be replaced with people who operate with integrity.
