    I have been working at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and being able to take time off when needed. Paid time off, including holidays etc

    Cons

    Being underpaid and over worked. Also, making the same pay as those who are less experienced and not as qualified for the position. Its quite unfair that a person with only a high school diploma can enter the doors receiving the same pay as person who holds several degrees. Dfcs should be as any other organization that pay you according to your experience or qualifications etc. I feel slighted and under appreciated. It would also be nice if the same meetings, promising the same things would just STOP IT!
    STOP MAKING A MOCKERY OUT OF YOUR EMPLOYEES! I feel as though its a set up and definitely time to find something much more rewarding!!!

    Advice to Management

    Everything is designed for the higher ups to succeed..point blank! Us little people will never make it anywhere within this agency!

    I have been working at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The health insurance, stable income, solid location and networking opportunities are all pros when working within the State office of DHS.

    Cons

    As with any job there are some cons that come with working for the State office of DHS; Stagnant, Top heavy organization, Lots of red tape, not much room for creativity and often complacent co workers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your constituents and employees concerns to build a more efficient entity. Dive into the work that those under you do so you can gain a clearer understanding of the work that is being done not just the results the work yields.

    I have been working at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You really get to help some people who really need it. There is room for advancement if you have the right background. Overall its a paycheck.

    Cons

    They over work you and under pay you. If you have a degree or background in social work this is the place for you. Sadly they hire alot of people with various backgrounds and it becomes a place where dreams come to die. No advancement unless you have a social work backing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling your employees things are going to change and they don't. Do not insult our intelligence. Stop micro managing and let us work.

    I worked at State of Georgia Department of Human Resources full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Date of last employment was 2009, but the selections only go 2011. It is good to work with such a large workforce such as DHR, because there is excellent Opportunity to learn new work experiences, work/travel within different Departmental levels.

    Cons

    I lost quite a bit of work time due to stressful, or injuries related issues. The Governors decision to decrease, and or discontinue retirement, and Annual pay increases was the most negative.areas.

    Advice to Management

    Protect the employees from political down-sizing in salarly, promotions, benefits, and departmental requisitioning. Don't allow Mandatory overtime without proper compensation.

    None. This organization is going down hill

    Cons

    They are completely off their rocker.... People deserve to be paid more money.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the organization... You are turning the SNAP program into a product/service like Comcast or DirecTV.
