Neutral
It’s very bureaucratic. The work is often more about checking boxes than helping
people which can be very frustrating. Each agency is managed differently, so your experience at one agency can be completely different at another
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Too bureaucratic

Inclusive environment for all
This employer contracts me to educate a target audience to receive a message offering them a chance to get to know the intricacies of what it's like to live with HIV/AIDS from a human perspective without judgment on the part of the audience.

A great state to serve
I started as a programmer trainee in late 1985. I was able to advance to systems programmer by mid 1989. I was fortunate to have supportive management for my entire career.

You would do well to get a job with the State of Michigan.

Challenging
I worked there 25 years and retired. They no longer have a pension it’s 401K system now. Pay and Benefits are great but long hours. They tell you when your shift is done. If you like overtime it’s a dream come true for ya.
Pros
Team work with frontline staff
Cons
Management will never understand how the job is done.

Horrible Place For Nurses
The Nursing Management is TOXIC. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. I saw the Nurse Manager actually trying to get 5 nurses license revoked. Sad but true. The management micromanages the Nursing Staff.

Fast paced work multifaceted environment
employer requires employees to be able to multitask and manage heavy workloads. Required to make decisions based on policy and procedures. Could encounter large volumes of calls and/or walk in appointments. Increased work load during COVID-19 pandemic.Considered an essential worker in this position

Good work place
I enjoy the work for the state of Michigan and would recommend the job to anyone as long as the person is willing to work. The case load will be high at times and you have to be organized.

Horrible...
I had many situations that the upper management didn't care what was going on.. I had some stuff that happened working for the state I thought they would have handled it.. they didn't. They don't care if you have a life outside of work. If you have children, spouse, or any life this is not the job for you. You work 24/7.

This is a horrible place to work. Management is not supportive to workers and caseloads are very high. Clients lie on workers and Management believes clients.

Great job
I'm never board, and it's very unpredictable. To work there you must demonstrate an ability to adapt and embrace change. There are always opportunities to advance and improve. Unfortunately you have to plan vacation about a year in advance.

Training and development
You will have to find out if the person or supervisor who is training you is knowledgeable and gives you the tools necessary for you to learn the job. This job takes at least 2 to 4 years to learn and you will continue to be in an every changing technology and administration. You must be able to interpret policy or have a reference to consult at all times. You must continue to educate yourself to the surroundings that you will working and the population that you will be serving.

Great opportunity
This position was contracted through Kelly Services. I very much enjoyed the opportunity to assist DHHS with a project that they did not have the manpower to complete. Would like the opportunity to work there on a permanent basis.

If you suceed as a CPS Investigator, you can perform any job.
Training prepares you for the paper work involved with regard to the reports, clearly defines child abuse, neglect. caregivers, responsible parties. Forensic interviewing, and assessing people, environments. However, training doesn't touch upon the realtime events that occur.
Pros
Pay is good. Experience opens lots of doors.
Cons
Horrible workplace culture at South Cental Wayne Unit, great culture at Western Wayne. . Kent no value for people of color.

The State delivers the goods
The work environment was focused and extremely well led, and workers were diligent, dedicated and took mission accomplishment very seriously. There was a sense with all leadership and team initiatives as to determining whether or not individual projects and efforts brought real value to the taxpayers.
