Productive, keeping public and inmates safe.
Marion Correctional Institution (Former Employee), Marion, OHFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: keeping the public safe
Cons: constant bad behavior from inmates
A typical day at work involved being assigned to a post and supervising inmates and instructing the inmates in job duties, cleaning the area, and up to three "counts" a day for accountability. I learned much about how to deal with diversity within people, how to communicate with people properly and how to do these things in a professional manure. Management – more... plays an important role in all situations, I believe that all management should lead by example, as it helps the employee respect and understand management. As an employee it should be a goal to maintain a good relationship with co-workers. The hardest part of the job was maintaining a professional attitude in an environment that was often hostile, violent, and disrespectful. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving at the end of your shift with no escapes, no staff injuries, no inmate injuries, no staff deaths, no inmate deaths and a smile going out the door. – less

Productive work environment. At times job duties weren't explained.
HIT1 (Former Employee), Northfield, OHJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: experience
Cons: no job security
Every morning I would get to my desk, get all files that I needed for the day, write out all other responsiblities that needed to be complete for the day. I learned how to analyze medical charts, new methods of data entry, Legal aspects of the State of Ohio Medical board. Hardest part of my job was seeing how life can beat someone so down that mental – more... instablility set in. Seeing how far the human mind can drift away from "reality", and stray into a world that is less cruel. It has made my own mind cherish the fact that I can learn. And learn fast to keep up with industry standards. Being that I worked for the mental health board for the State of Ohio, the most enjoyable part of my job was seeing patients come in with no hope, and then seeing them walk out of the doors with a new sense of hope and new look at the world. Sometime I would think, us "normal" people would be so lucky. – less

Political
Department of Admin (Current Employee), Columbus, OHJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: good technical staff and good, leading edge technology
Cons: political interference and leaders who don't understand technology
Too much political interference and senior managers tripping over each other for control. Also, senior managers don't understand the technology, make technical decisions, and drive to ridiculous deadlines without understand impact, re-work, or cross-project dependencies. Technical staff is great, but leaving - some are holding on for a couple of years – more... for pension benefits, but the young talent is departing. – less

Licensed Social Worker (LSW) (Former Employee), Orient, OHNovember 29, 2013
My typical day at work consisted of meeting with clients to render case management and supportive counseling services.
