So much fun, I can't believe it's city government
Clinical Director (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 27, 2016
I've worked at DHS since November 2015. My division is incredible. The deputy commissioner is kind, intelligent, and funny. He sets a great tone; all the other managers are very kind and generous with their time. As a new administrator, I've been learning so much about program development, management, and creative problem-solving. It might not be like this through the agency, but I'm happy every day to go to work and make a difference.
