      Pros

      Great job. Great hours. Great benefits.

      Cons

      Pay could be a little bit better. Had to furlough because of budget crisis back then.

      no work/ life balance. They will mandate you to work ot even if you have prior personal engagements. They are reducing benefits. You are required to furlough once a month.

      Pros

      Great pay scale (as long as 5-year long furloughs don't come back), good benefits, nice co-workers.

      Cons

      At the Belrose office we were once told not to talk outside of breaks, and you're here to be seen, not heard , during furloughs, we couldn't take our time off when needed, "I tell you when you can take off." Yikes!

      The Gov has no appreciation

      Pros

      You may have job security.

      Cons

      No career path.- unless you're a male Low wages, lack of raises, furloughs, and when you do get a 3% increase, they reduce it by raising healthcare and benefit costs. I netted a . -1.5% decrease on my paycheck after the first raise in 5 years was offset by an increase in benefits costs. Outdated salary range that do not reflect the increase in the cost of living over the last 8 years. No education funds No training funds No mentoring (unless you're a male) No employee appreciation - in the form of an email from the Gov. Employees contribute to their own appreciation and throw themselves a party. The state wouldn't spend a nickel to show appreciation. Medicaid has better insurance then the state offers and new employees don't get any insurance or pension. No upper management HR training so no hope for change. A hierarchy that does not allow access to decision makers, information coming from Grade 2X or 3X becomes rumor after having to navigate the 'Supervisor/Manager' game.

      A satisfying place to work!! You won't get rich.....but it is very unlikely you will get laid off!!

      Pros

      In the process of changing the manner in which cases are processed so that workers are not saddled with an overwhelming case load. Every once in a while you get the satisfaction of knowing you helped someone who really needed help!!

      Cons

      Constant changes in policies, you are subject to be moved from one district office to another depending on the agency's needs, and at least until 2015 you are still subject to the unpaid furloughs.
