- Cabinet for Health and Family Services08.Dec 2015
Everyone does what they want. I've heard employees say many times how they could do whatever would never get fired
Support from management
Leadership doesn't exist with the Cabinet.
Colleagues hated one another on the team I was on.
Freedom to work independently
Nothing fair with state government
Meetings were useless. They were just an excuse to get out of the office
No promotional opportunities whatsoever.
I worked as an OSA II with the Cabinet for almost 5 years. During 2015 alone I applied to 6 administrative specialist positions and wasnt even offered an interview. Its ridiculous. I have over 24 years secretarial/clerical experience, 58 Months with the Cabinet, and even enrolled in college working toward obtain a degree in Business Adminstration.
Attitude towards older colleagues
No support or appreciation. I was forced to find employment outside state government due to no promotional opportunities and low wages.
Employees receive the basics in trainings
Overall compensation for your work
Due to low wages and no promotional opportunities I was forced to seek employment outside the Cabinet
Working for the Cabinet was without a doubt the worst job I've ever had.
This was the only good thing about the job
Employees hate their jobs and complain continuously. Frankfort only takes notice of anything if the media becomes involved.
I heard employees state numerous times that they would never get fired. They may get a slap on the wrist but never fired.
Only time you're noticed for an accomplishment is if someone in Frankfort notices and then they only notice anything when the media gets involved
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- Stop hiring favorites and start hiring qualified individuals
What I like about the company
Only positive I can give is the Cabinet is "flexibility".
What I dislike about the company
The dishonesty and unfairness with state government jobs. It shouldn't be about who you know to get a job or promotion but about an individual / employees qualifications and abilities
