Administrative Specialist / Security Analyst (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – April 8, 2015
When I started with the Department I wasn’t even able to tell you who the Governor was, but working with the NYSDOH I've learned a lot. A typical day consists of answering phones, emails, problem solving and long hours on the computer. Everyone for the most part is on the same time crunch and we work together to complete the tasks.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 24, 2014
The New York State Department of Health was very interesting place to work. There was a lot to learn regarding the policies and protocols of State run programs. It was never boring. Work flow was steady and sometimes fast paced. Employee rapport was congenial and easy going. A typical day on the job involved fielding numerous phone calls from WIC vendors regarding fines and violations, scheduling meetings and conferences, editing reports from Senior Investigators, data input, filing. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a case being resolved successfully. The hardest part of the job was setting up conferences for vendors and ultimately they were a no show.

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – January 3, 2013
My duties consist of schedule management for co-workers, projects, and meetings; contact person for my office; assistance with research and project completion. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to learn knew things everyday, and know that the work we are doing has a goal of making New York State ultimately a better place to live. The hardest part of the job is that I am a contractor (as oppose to an employee of the State) and currently advancement opportunities are slim and pay is low.
