Great benefits, little opportunity to grow.
Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (Current Employee) – West Allis, WI – September 19, 2016
The department of Workforce Development sounded like a great opportunity for me in the beginning. I liked the idea of helping people with disabilities, but I slowly started to resent my job when the work environment was led by a toxic and abusive director. The benefits no longer felt worth the low pay, and marginal opportunities for growth. I was denied more than twice by the current director of WDA2, to transfer to a different location with a different director. The caseload sizes are far too large to provide quality services to all the consumers. I didn't feel good about the work I was doing or about the environment I had to work in.
poor pay, poor leadership, poor opportunities for advancement
