Florida department of health (broward county) experience report

  • 10.Mar 2018
  • Employee

A lot of work for very low pay

2.67

Company Culture

Intimidating

Support from management

Complaints fall on deaf ears.

Teamwork

Always short staffed

Freedom to work independently

You’re independent alright...too independent. They expect you to do the work of 3 people, even when you ask for help.

Career Development

There’s very little opportunity for advancement

Overall compensation for your work

The pay is terrible

Work-Life Balance

The work just keeps piling up...you can never catch up.

Job Security

During disasters they expect you to drop everything and go work for days at the shelter for no extra pay, even if you have small children or elderly/disabled family members at home. If you refuse, you get fired.

Workplace Safety

There was too much work to catch mistakes. When you’re constantly worried about losing your license, it’s unsafe.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay your employees what the outside sector pays.

What I like about the company

The health, retirement benefits and work hours.
