Company Culture

There is very minimal interaction with team members making it very hard to determine the work culture.

Challenging Work

My work is very repetetive and has reached a point where it is not challenging at all.

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would be helpful to have more interactions with team members and get more opportunities to share the challenges faced while doing the work. It would also helpg to have a chance to do more challenging projects.

What I like about the company

The department i work for at DHHS provides a very positive and welcomong working environment.My supervisor is very caring and supportive and always provides positive feedback about my work.I have the opportunity to ask questions and get help with my work,which is very helpful in performing well.

What I dislike about the company

There is no opportunity for growth in my department and the job i do is not very challenging making it hard to have a positive morale for the work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Provide better benefits and/or salaries that meet the national average. Better work buildings. More team support and camaraderie. Improve maternal/paternal leave. Improve the transition between temporary and permanent positions. Speed up hiring process; it takes an average of 4-6 months to hire someone.

What I like about the company

The ability to network with colleagues throughout the state and nation was amazing.

What I dislike about the company

The public sector does not seem to take care of its employees-in regards to salary, work benefits, poor building conditions, and work demands.
