Great management and trial experience
Trial Attorney (Former Employee), Boston, MAMarch 14, 2013
The days were either in court or preparing for litigation and trial. I learned a great deal about litigation and how to conduct a trial. The management was very supportive and knowledgeable. The co-workers were extremely supportive and easy to get along with. The hardest part is the stress of litigation. The most enjoyable part was winning a hard-fought – more... trial. – less

Pros: benefits

Great benefits and rewarding work. The benefits; union membership, health, dental, and eye insurance, sick leave, compensation days, vacation time, and the opportunity to earn over time, make the pay rate worth it.

Job Instability
Youth Worker (Former Employee), Western RegionJanuary 17, 2013
Pros: hours and pay
Cons: poor management
Note that job is state funded! Should fiscal issues arise your position will be cut in the most crude way. Position is driven by the amount of juveniles in custody. Juvenile custody levels remain low. The company "motto" commends the reformation of youth however there is no real rehabilitation.

ay, benefits are good
Correction Officer (Former Employee), MCI Cedar Junction - WalpoleJanuary 2, 2013
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: the enviroment you work in
Not everyone can do this job. Dealing with convicted criminals is not easy, its a stressful and demanding job. Co-workers are great for the most with a few execptions, communication is not great with the line staff. The best part of the day is going home after your shift is over if you don't get forced overtime.

I worked In Taunton at the ELectronic Management of health and Human services
Temporary (Former Employee), Taunton,maDecember 1, 2012
I worked as a temp.

It was the worst job I've ever held. I archived files that were old and full of mice excrements.
The employees status Quo was to do as little as possible.
It was like being in Jr. High all over again. The gossiping was ridiculous. If they spent more time actually doing their jobs, maybe something would get accomplished.

Enjoyed working in an independent professional atmosphere.
Executive Office of Labor & Workforce Development (Current Employee), Brockton, MANovember 19, 2012
I would go to work to call claimants and employers to get both sides of a statement and according to the law of mass make a decision on claims that needed to be processed by a certain time frame. My co-workers were all very helpful and informative in the process. Always willing to help. Very laid back atmosphere to work in. it is expected from not only – more... me but my peers to get the job done. Would not change it for the world. – less
