    I worked at State of Utah full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Secure.

    Cons

    Becoming a Director or supervisor is by how long you have been with the department. Favoritism. Most directorsor supervisors are not qualified or know the position they are put in. Management openings are not usually open for employees to apply. Managers are taught and trained in their divison as they go along. Most directors or supervisors lack people and leadership skills. Goals and audits are not placed on management like they are on regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and trust when it come to those that you are over. Director's need to be open to advise from those that they manage.

    I have been working at State of Utah full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady employment, typical 8 am to 5 pm day, paid holidays, good benefits, small department, and own office.

    Cons

    Utah is one of the lowering paying states for this position. Pay raises are only a few cents. Benefits have gone up in price and cancel out pay raise. Extremely difficult to raise a family on low salary.

    Advice to Management

    Policy makers of Utah need to increase salary and send someone to see what worker does on a daily basis. Utah needs to a lot more money into social services, it's programs and employees. Turn over rate too high because of all these factors and case load. Due to small department size career opportunities are limited.
