    I worked at State of North Carolina full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This is a government position, so it's perhaps less volatile than the private sector. It is almost impossible to get fired from these agencies.

    Cons

    The agency is VERY politicized.
    There is no consistency to policies or direction from one year to the next.
    No training opportunities exist.
    Advancement is not possible without moving to another agency.
    Like all state jobs, raises happen rarely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reform of state government and restructuring of these kinds of commissions is the only hope for improvement in both performance and employee satisfaction.

    I worked at State of North Carolina as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great state government work experience and the hours are great- 8-5 with a flexible work schedule. Also since it us a temporary agency there are part time options, etc. you can also work at another department if your current assignment ends or is not working.

    Cons

    Awful customer service, rude employees at temporary agency. Also for a long time you could not submit time sheets online or by fax so you had to drive there and drop them off. I think this has changed however. Also temporary employees do not get benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The temporary agency needs to coach customer service skills to its employees. Many times when I called for pay stubs or time sheets the employees were rude and unhelpful. My employer also had issues with them making mistakes on the invoices.

    Pros

    No pros other than a boring job.

    Cons

    Very low salaries and no potential for salary increases. At the mercy of the the legislature. Poor manager who act like dictators. Most managers hand pick employees they want to give a promotion to justify a salary increase. Employees almost work for free. No opportunity for improvement or advancement. Young people rdon't come to work for the state. Not your employer of choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to all employees. Stop low balling salaries.
