    Pros

    For me, the State has been flexible with my schedule - allowing me to telecommute or adjust for kids acitivies. The best advantage to working at the state is the great benefits (leave, medical, etc.)

    Cons

    Technology and many ways of thinking of management are very antiquated. There are no raises - you have to switch positions in order to get any kind of increase. This is a poor managment style as you are not able to keep the knowledgable, qualified people in positions unless that person has no desire to increase their income potential. Management is extremely inconsistent and it is often the case that poor managment and supervisors are promoted without regard for ability to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to ability of management to provide quality management and leadership to their teams. Make sure employees are challenged and inspired. Try to get some energy into these drab/draining environments.

    I very much enjoy my job. The majority of my coworkers are enjoyable. The work is interesting. Advancement is encouraged. Training is available. The pay is competitive in most ways. The benefits are great.

    Cons

    There are done people who have had their jobs for a long time and do not perform. It is not often that people who underperform or who are no longer qualified for their work receive any sort of corrective action.
