Great place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good people to work with and great benefits. Advancement opportunities. Travel twice a month a minimum. Pay is on the lower side for most states. Smaller office.

Worst employer I have had

Where do I begin. As a new nurse, I felt I was thrown to the wolves. BEFORE going through company orientation, myself and other nurses shadowed another nurse for 3 days and were then expected to work alone on a unit with minimal resources. Management is disorganized. Our unit is poorly staffed due to high turnover and they constantly beg you to work extra hours. Most of the new nurses quit after a week or two due to the low pay, chaos and lack of training. The only positive thing her is the benefits, but benefits can’t pay your bills. Run! Run far away from the FDVA! You are risking your license here!




Low pay, minimal training, poor staffing

Excellent workplace

Working for the state government allows individuals to contribute to the well-being of their communities and the state as a whole. Many government jobs involve public service, and employees may find fulfillment in making a positive impact on the lives of residents. Very rewarding.

Great place to work, everyone gets along, and the benefits are very nice. Salary can be challenging, but if you stick it out, you will be taken care of.

Fun at first

When first starting out, it is a fun place to work. However, you are quickly thrown into the fire with hundreds of cases and barely and support staff to help.

Stay away

The management will not stand up for you nor will they train you correctly. So, when the ball drops on their foot; it's actually you who gets the boot. The pay is not worth it for all the stuff you have to handle. This is all Sarasota County.

Positive workplace

It is a rewarding job. It is not a difficult job once you are trained and follow the plan. As long as you comply with the training that you receive you will be successful.

Decent pay. Lots of hours

You must work mandated overtime that they can spring on you any day if the week. You are left alone a lot and there are no breaks. You have to have it in your blood to make it.


Great benefits


No breaks, learn on your own, bad attitudes

Some agencies are much. Enter than others.

Different agencies have different core missions. Some agencies are better managed and supported than others. There has been great improvements overall with support and pay increases under the current Governor.


Pay is getting better


LE can be difficult and dangerous work

It's hard work, but the benefits make it worth at max 3 years.

Honestly with everything going on in the world right now I am glad I got out when I did. Just know office politics is huge, and Drama is a constant struggle. You can't just go to work and work. Someone or a group has to make a scene. Advice would be just go for the benefits, and the two college courses a semester the state will pay for you, so you can find a better career than this place.


2 credit college courses paid for, benefits, two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch.


Everything, except those pros I mentioned.

Great environment.

Great environment. Low pay. The governor needs to invest in the employees and offer an increase consistent with rising prices. Everything is increasing but salaries.

Rewarding job with great benifits

Most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with. They always brighten your day and always have your back no matter what. Hardest part of the job is spending so much time away from your family.


Great work environment


No breaks. Long hours.

Supervisors lack empathy and care more about numbers than about doing good for the community.

Management is jaded and bitter , especially at DCF. But this includes all departments. The pay is horrible and management is sneaky and back stabbing. They make your job miserable and stressful. The pay is horrible.


Great insurance


Low pay; poor management

Had a wonderful supervisor that made it a wonderful place to work.

I enjoyed my job, but it was a long commute. I loved my supervisor which made my job great. I would have stayed longer if the job were closer to my home.


Understanding boss

Great workplace

They were an awesome employer, with management that cared not only about your professional success, but your personal wellbeing as well. If you are good at what you do and bring something to the table there is always room for advancement.

Terrible pay

Nice people to work with, but the State does not value their nurses, as evidenced by extremely low pay. Also, you must work in the shelters if there is a hurricane, and you don’t get any extra pay for that, even though the doctors get paid extra (and they don’t even have any interaction with the shelter patients).

Love my coworkers.

I work this job only during election season. My team works hard and we all accomplish our goal as one force. I look forward to getting back together each time work is available.

Do not work in the kitchen

The supervisors will will not help if someone calls out. Mangers fraternize with co-workers. Have favoritism continue to let co-workers call out constantly. Supervisors sleeps in the office, leave you unattended for days. Let co-workers do what they want to do and don’t care!!!




Horrible environment, horrible management
