    I worked at State of Colorado full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    While working at the Office of Information Technology, I was impressed by the incredible breadth of exposure to the State's many agencies, their unique software applications and citizen-driven agendas. The number and types of applications was stunning (not in a good way), but it provided an exciting challenge and I learned more in my two years at OIT than I had in the previous five.

    Cons

    This was my first public sector job, but I did a lot of research and was mostly prepared for the things that many complain about (i.e., bureaucracy, lower pay, complacency among some employees, etc.). I think the one thing that I wasn't completely prepared for was the length and rigidity of the budgeting process. It's a minimum of 18 months - and it often took several years - to get anything of substance through the legislature and into an operating budget. As a technology pro trying to move the needle on newer technologies, it was frustrating to deal with such a lengthy budgeting cycle. If I were a "lifer" it might have been tolerable, but I wasn't planning to finish my career there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was only there for two years, a blink of an eye in public sector terms, so I don't have the answers. But I think the State of Colorado and OIT in particular need to figure out how to be more nimble. The technology landscape evolves more quickly than OIT is able to evolve, and that inhibits OIT from attracting and retaining the best technology professionals.
