    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at State of Florida full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Rewarding job working with aged and disabled clients with excellent benefits. No overtime/weekends/holidays. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Performance evaluation at 90-days and annually with no salary increases ever unless the governor decides that the state employees should receive one. Hurricane Shelter duty is required. If minimum number of cases are not completed, management assigns more work to you.

    Advice to Management

    Lobby for cost of living and merit increases. Create rewards for jobs well done. Don’t Punish by adding more to the workload.
