      I worked at Texas Health and Human Services Commission full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Working with the public, knowing that you're helping someone achieve a better way of life.

      Cons

      No raises, I worked there for 5 years and only received 1 raise. Upper management only worries about their numbers and making themselves look good. They don't care that their employees are overworked and underpaid for the amount of work that they have to do.

      Advice to Management

      Namely Program Managers and above......workers have lives and when overworked and underpaid they tend to quit. Hence, the high turnover.

    • It’s okay Good benefits

        Pros

        Job security, adequate parking, cafeteria

        Cons

        The focus is on certain numbers and nothing else is as important as that. Unrealistic expectations from management for what is achievable.
