Investigative Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 30, 2016
Operations management refers to a focus on the practices designed to monitor and manage all of the processes within the production and the distribution of products and services. The largest activities that operations management focuses on are product creation and service development, and the efficiency with which both are distributed. Managing purchases, monitoring inventory and preserving quality are the primary goals. Operations management often includes analyzing a company's internal processes. Ultimately, the way that an organization carries out operations management depends upon the nature of products or services that it offers.

appointments with clients, case management, develop the plans and services appropriate to clients' needs, documentations, customer service,
Supervisor fully support the counselor. Management strongly leans toward compliances with Federal laws and it does listen to your proposals/arguments.
Co-workers are the greatest and they do truly understand the concept of teamwork.
The hardest parts of the job are dealing with unsatisfied/unmotivated clients and meeting the timelines if you are so busy.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to see the clients achieved their plan goals by obtaining the employment.

Overall, the job iteself was very rewarding, but many changes needed to take place throughout the organization.
Case Manager - CPSS III Young Adult Program (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 5, 2016
Overall, the job itself was rewarding because we had the ability to impact the lives of many children who had been apart of the system for most of their lives. However, I believe most upper management positions took for granted how difficult and overwhelming the position could be. Many case mangers were given an unreasonable work load without consideration for the demands of each case. The hardest part of this job was trying not to become emotionally attached to the children you worked with, but the most enjoyable part was working with these children and making a difference in their lives.
Pros
The number of benefits given to employees as a whole.
Cons
The amount of mandatory retirement you had to pay into.

My opinion on this workplace
Correctional Records Technician II (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 2, 2016
High learning curve, enjoy the work.. not the rate of pay. It seems only the people at the top are concerned about their money, and do not remember all the people supporting the agency. Poor leadership, especially when the leadership have not SEEN the people below them in over five years. I think there is a lack of coordination, and leadership by the senior staff.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
Lack of adequate pay for performance or built in cost of living

Excellent benefits with supporting management that actively encouraged growth and advancement.
Program Service Evaluator III (Former Employee) –  Sierra Vista, AZ and Phoenix, AZOctober 26, 2016
Co-workers are fabulous, the ability to assist people with their needs provides great fulfillment. The hardest part of the job is having to tell clients that they don't qualify for benefits when you can tell they were counting on receiving anything, no matter how much or little. Greatest part of the job is being able to tell people that they can receive much needed assistance and seeing some of their daily stress lifting off of their shoulders.
Pros
Supporting management staff, demonstrating an active willingness to provide assistance where ever needed
Cons
Having to tell clients that they don't qualify for benefits.

Fair pay but zero chance of moving up
Program Service Evaluator III (Former Employee) –  Tucson, ArizonaOctober 25, 2016
The State pays well but the work environment is mundane with little chance of advancement. Management has promoted several employees with positions of supervisor when these employees were not good in their current positions. A highly stressful workload burdens employees with daily tasks which exceed 33 percent the traditional workload.
Pros
pay
Cons
Poor leadership
