enjoyable work environment, very little room for advancement.
Environmental Specialist II (Current Employee), Pensacola, FLAugust 30, 2015
I work in the environmental health division. Overall I enjoy the work, there is rarely a dull day. I've had many opportunities to learn different aspects of environmental health.

Unfortunately, the pay is not exceptional nor are there any opportunities for merit based raises. It's been 3 years since my position has earned a cost of living raise. I've only been there a few years and I earn the same amount as a guy that has the same title as I do who has been there for 25 years. There is really very little room for advancement. It's a great place to get experience to put on your resume, but not a great long term career choice.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FlAugust 13, 2015
Pros: I was able to grow in my position
Cons: No room for advancement
My time at the Department of Health was a life long experience. My Division went through a lot of changes, some that were good and some that was not so good. However, during that transitional period I was able to maintain a positive attitude and continue to provide quality work. I consider myself to be a team player with my co-workers as well.

Distributed Computer Systems Specialist (Current Employee), Orlando, FloridaAugust 5, 2015
Pros: Wide range of tasks
Cons: Future career advancement is non-existant
The Florida Department of Health has been very influential in developing the necessary skills to succeed in today's competitive market. The wide range of tasks and issues creates an environment that is both demanding and fast-paced. The most enjoyable aspect for myself deals with project management. The planning phase of project management provides a window into the long-term operations and goals of the department.

Regulatory Specialist (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FLApril 13, 2015
Pros: The directors would allow the entire unit to go out once a month.

I worked at Dept. of Revenue for 17 years and needed a change. So I applied for the position at Dept. of Health and accepted it when they offered it to me. I found the environment to be very pleasant as everyone was willing to help me with any questions that I may have had.
