Unemployment Adjudicator (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 14, 2017
There are many great people who work for the state, yet management doesn't seem to know what they are doing at times. Its stressful work for very low pay. Indiana is a not what you know but who you know to get ahead place to work. Management seems to only recognize certain people and if you are not in the click with these people you can be over looked for any advancement.
Secretary III (Former Employee) – Indianapolis IN – August 14, 2017
Working in government sometimes could feel political. Good experience in working within a large diverse culture. Good learning experience. Lots of data tracking and processing, typical office environment
Computer Scheduler, IBM Mainframe (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 4, 2017
Just an OK place to work. The benefits have been slashed. Instead of doing the jobs that the Indians do, you are relegated to being subservient to them. Pay is low. Opportunity for advancement seems to be OK. Bosses are decent. Upon orientation, they promised a pension. But there is no longer such. The 401K only contributes from the employer $15 per check. Overall, the State of Indiana is just an average place to work. What was once an organization with fabulous benefits is now an organization of mediocre benefits.
Fast paced work environment with the opportunity for overtime. Office setting.
Public Assistance Caseworker (Former Employee) – Kokomo, IN – July 28, 2017
I really enjoyed the fast paced work environment because I prefer a day that is productive vs having little to do. I learned the ins and outs of benefit processes and it really helped me to understand programs that I had previously been a customer for. The hardest part about the job for me was seeing our community members struggle during the holidays. No one should be without, especially those times of the year. I honestly enjoyed seeing the relief in a customers face when they would find out that they qualified for much needed assistance.
Office life is good, upper management lacks understanding
Family Case Manager (Current Employee) – Warsaw, IN 46580 – July 17, 2017
Working for the government is a great job with good benefits, however its very frustrating. The upper management does not think about those in the field and makes decisions based on what is going on politically or current in the news not what is best for the field staff. They do not take into account culture of the places where workers are working and make decisions based on the state as a whole. The state currently has been taking more and more liberties away from the employees and not offering anything in return. Pay raises are next to non existent. The local offices are good and staff works together to help one another.
Being able to assist the public and making a difference is awesome.
State Eligibility Consultant (Former Employee) – Hammond, IN – July 10, 2017
I love servicing my clients and most of my coworkers worked great as a team. Upper management could do more ti increase office morale and show employee appreciation. The biggest issue was there is not much opportunity for advancement and the pay is not good. My schedule was great outside of not being able to get 40 hours a week. This is an okay place to gain experience, however not a place to retire from.
You work Monday through Friday and off on weekends and holidays.
Minimum opportunities for advancement and low pay increases.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Angola, IN – July 2, 2017
Very heavy job based knowledge, with continual changes per state policy. Large customer base, often unhappy clients. Need to assure customers constantly and complete all transactions within a state mandated time limit of three minutes or less for each transactions.
Great environment, close knit, friendly, commutable
Program Coordinator 6 (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 26, 2017
The job as a whole is a good experience. There is a lot to learn and they offer a variety of mandatory training classes to help you understand the full spectrum of what you are doing. Great culture of hard working people who also enjoy what they are doing which makes getting along with others easy. It's entry level so there are plenty of opportunities to move up as you'd like.
Good benefits and paid federally observed holidays
Correctional Officer (Former Employee) – Rockville, IN – June 12, 2017
Not a job for everybody, Long hours. Good benefits just not a ideal job for somebody with a family. You will have a lot of people calling in all the time . Then you will have to fill spots and be short handed on shift
