rn (Current Employee), Fort Walton Beach, FL – April 24, 2013
fun place to work but under utilizes RN staff and takes advantage of military population by offering many OPS jobs and very few career service positions. In OPS you work full time or nearly full time hours without any benefits at all.
Government Operations Consultant II (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FL – January 18, 2013
Pros: bad management
Cons: healthcare, benefits
Florida Department of Health is a okay place to work with great benefits (State) with an annual leave package, sick leave package, etc. A typical day is not to overwhelming performing assigned tasks. My co-workers are outstanding and very easy to work with. They are truly team players. Management does not care about their employees. Some employees that – more... are deserving pay raises are overlooked for promotions while underserving employees are given raises. – less
Program Nurse Specialist (Current Employee), Fort Walton Beach, FL – January 11, 2013
Pros: satisfaction of helping others
Cons: inability to find resources needed for clients
I work in a primary care clinic caring for clients in poverty and no insurance. I learn to search for resources that are available to our clients. It is difficult to accept the many road blocks that arise when trying to find resources for clients. I enjoy working one on one with clients and building a nurse/client relationship with trust, that I have – more... their best interest at heart – less
A diverse atmosphere with unique individuals committed to helping the public.
Store Keeper 1 (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FL – October 2, 2012
Pros: benefits, friendly people, and a steady work schedule.
The best thing about my job is the fact that I am providing assistance to the public. I am part of a process that acquires pharmaceuticals at a low cost and passes on the savings to individuals who are in need. The management staff goes out of it's way to make sure that each employee is properly trained and cared for. I would say that my co-workers – more... are more like an extended family since we see each other just as much. – less
Human Services Counselor II (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FL – September 12, 2012
The culture is less than friendly or supportive of the employee. Employees have no real input in service delivery. Promotion opportunity is limited to select few and generally higher level positions are offered to new hirees. The tendency is to be punitive of employees if there is an appearance of a mistake or if a mistake is made. There is little camaraderie – more... but rather small cliques.
Management is not generally supportive, and often will only support their favorites.
The most pleasant part of the job comes from satisfaction gained working with the patients. – less
Medical Disability Program Specialist (Current Employee), Tampa, FL – July 4, 2012
I have the opportunity to expand my knowledge base in disease pathology. I work with a great set of people that know: although we work in a very serious environment that doesn't always promote camaraderie --- we still genuinely like each other and look forward to see one another every day. Although the beginning of the week is pretty stressful, once – more... you figure out the ins and outs of the job, you can complete your workload for the week by Wednesday and have an easy rest of the week. – less
