Perfect question because "work environment and culture" are THE problem at this company. If you work in human services you know about deadlines, paperwork, and crises. At this agency you have to factor in a complete lack of competence and support from anyone in management above a basic supervisory level. You put yourself on the line every day dealing with client crises and no one above you has any experience or interest in the work to actually help you out. Unbelievable, but true.

It's easy to know you're making a difference in peoples lives. That's the motivation to do the job every day. At this company, it's clear that none of that matters. If you can find your own reason to do the work every day, there are people who need you, but the organization you work for couldn't care less about you, your coworkers, or the clients.

Raises have happened and pay is fair compared to other similar jobs. Management has taken a lot of steps to show they care. Benefits are also very good.

New hires have stated they understand and are pleased with the hiring process from start to finish and we have been very fortunate to have very talented staff join our team. We have been able to start new hires as soon as 1-2 weeks from interviewing them and sometimes it takes longer, depending on the interview process conducted by hiring managers and their decision on making offers to the right candidate. References, background checks, and drug screens are all part of the process and that can take 1-2 days up to a few weeks for all of those records to be processed by various regulatory agencies.

12 sick days + 12 vacation days for new employees then accruals increase after 5 years. We also get 2 personal days and most major holidays. We are allowed to roll over unused vacation and our sick time goes into a personal bank that can be used later. We are also allowed to donate our sick time to coworkers when needed.
