    I worked at Texas Health and Human Services Commission (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with many fine co-workers all trying to turn a bad environment into a good one.

    Cons

    Inconsistent direction from the top. Too few policies to provide operational stability so managers change procedures frequently. Archaic database systems from which employees are expected to extract statistics that are often unreliable, but used regardless. Stressful working conditions and unreasonable stress created by managers. Employee turnover is high.

    I have been working at Texas Health and Human Services Commission full-time

    Pros

    Insurance and benefits are great; salary is the same every month. Flexible time off and family type environment.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for raises or bonuses with the state. Even if you apply and get accepted for another position, you will only be allowed a 7% increase despite the rate of pay of the new position.

    No additional training for employees; management plays favoritism and offers no incentives. Very much "do as I say, not as I do."
