    I worked at Utah Department of Human Services full-time

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with. They are very dedicated to their work and want to make a difference for the people of Utah.

    Cons

    This is still a government job that comes with the red tape and meaningless but necessary tasks.

    I worked at Utah Department of Human Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    State benefits are decent. Holidays and vacation are good.

    Cons

    Office of Recovery Services employs some of the poorest work ethic employees I've encountered in Government. Training is non existent. Some managers are great, while other are a walking joke. No incentives to produce. As long as you show up to work, despite your productivity, your employment if bomb safe. Upper management is non-existent to the realities and poor culture that their hires create on the floor. No accountability. None. Documents get lost all the time from the public. CIU managers couldn't solve a problem if their life depended on it. Of all the overpaid Office Specialist in the State of Utah, the majority of them are in ORS/CIU. There are Office Specialist making 20+/hr, working 20 hour weeks and those who get hired on make only 10/hr @ 40 hours. Despite those who are paid lower, do MORE or the workload. Management wouldn't care less "as long as the work gets done, right?" I can't account for prior administrations, but this one is dispicable. Poor office moral and and even poorer outlook. No leadership, whatsoever. Yet, someone is getting paid and pretending to lead.

    I have been working at Utah Department of Human Services full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to to change the lives of individuals. Some opportunity for growth if you are willing to move to different departments and division.

    Cons

    It is government.. Working for the State you are luck to get a 2% COLA per year. New employees are getting fewer benefits than many current employees and the same pay. Limited opportunity for promotion. Most new positions start at the beginning of the pay scale and can not go up as there are no step increases.

    I have been working at Utah Department of Human Services full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours and relaxed expectations make this a cushy place to work. That's also one of the problems.

    Cons

    Self-motivated people who are interested in making real and lasting changes for the better have an extremely difficult uphill battle. Institutional laziness and fear of change make it nearly impossible to tackle projects that will lead to increasingly positive outcomes. Political factors play too much of a role in management decisions.

    If you like helping people this is a great job. Case Workers, work with children and adults and is able to remove children out of dangers situation. There is also the joy of seeing a parent getting their life together and children return back to their home.
