    I have been working at New York State Office of Mental Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    salary increases, good benefits, pension is OK for newbies, nothing to brag about but at least you get vested after 10 yrs. If you are a good worker and have a good reputation for producing work that helps the system and being good at what you do, you can excel in your career within the OMH system..of course, as long as you have the academic credentials as well to meet those job req's.

    Cons

    civil jobs pay less than private

    I have been working at New York State Office of Mental Health as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Job security and potential to receive regular salary increases.

    Cons

    Career advancement can be political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualfied interns would have demonstrated quality job performance during time given without salary. Also provide stipends throughout the students field placements for travel expenses.
