Information Technology Programmer/Analyst 11 (Current Employee) – Michigan – October 27, 2018
Have to deal with bureaucracy which can make some things difficult. Good place to work but slow movement upward, especially if you want to stay in same division. A lot of good people work here but there are also some incompetent people as well. I would advise working here if you get a chance. Good place to learn and gain experience.
Good healthcare, training, and good amout of holidays
Difficult to get some stuff done, incompetence from a few employees

When someone gets real sick and has to be hospital adminded
DEPARTMENT AIDE E-8 (Former Employee) – Wyoming, MI 49509 – October 28, 2018
Unless you kiss you know what, you don't get any advancement. Upper management is like the govenment, we can take vacations and time off when we want but you can't. If you have sick family members, good luck trying to get time to go to the doctor or hospital with them. Years ago, was a decent place to work, but then you got people who decided they couldn't be human.

Opportunity to learn about a lot of various systems because of the many agencies and departments in State Government
Business Services Manager & Budget Analyst (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – October 23, 2018
I worked for three different State Departments during my time in State Government. These jobs provided me an opportunity to learn various systems and corporate culture. My years at the State were highly rewarding and cherished.
Many opportunities to learn and transfer to other departments if desired.
The job that we do at DHHS is a very beneficial job that services the community that we work in and near, but the pay is minimal for all that we do.
Eligibility Specialist (Current Employee) – Port Huron, MI – October 20, 2018
A typical work day consist of processing cases along with answering the client phone calls, meeting with clients that come in to the office with questions and concerns. Management is decent, depending on whose Unit you are placed in. All of the managers operate differently and have different expectations, which make it more difficult when you switch from one Unit to the other. The culture is one that is not as it should be, which is a leadership, but it is more of a boss style, do as I say with no desire for input from the staff. The hardest part of the job is to try adhere to all of the changes that are made daily so when you think that you have met their expectations, they are changed. The most enjoyable part of the job is servicing the clients.
Servicing the community
Massive workload and trainings without heavy support from management
An environment that requires compassion, patience and zero tolerance
Administrative Support (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – October 18, 2018
A typical day at work includes, filing, sorting, answering phone calls, dealing with the public, data entry, mail room activities, along with ordering stock and supplies for the office, and attend meetings.
Eligibility Specialist (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – October 14, 2018
Management needs to be trained on working with employees. Also, state employment is very political. It is a very "top down" organization. I think if you want to make a change you have to be willing to put the work in.
