      No appreciation

      Jan 21, 2022 - Developmental Disabilities Specialist III in Elko, NV
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Co-workers and individuals supported. Job security because everywhere is short staffed.

      Cons

      No appreciation from upper management. Understaffed and large caseloads. Upper management continues to dump more responsibilities and expectations but provides no training. COVID has made things go from bad to worse. Work moral is very low and people are leaving! Basically it’s not worth it to work for the state anymore.
