Worked at the State level
Psychiatric Technician (Former Employee) – Los Lunas, NM – June 7, 2018
I worked for the State of NM Department of Health and Human Services. In my specific capacity with this agency it was hit and miss. All in all, working for a government organization has huge perks. However, in New Mexico, there was a lot of nonsense. What with coordinators at the agency giving some preferential treatment for family, and it went unpunished when reported. With that said, I received amazing health benefits and still a fair share of advancement opportunities.
Advancement, great skills to bring to the private sector, and it's government work!
In my experience in NM, there's a lot of favoritism and stepping over people.
