    Pros

    The SC Legislative Audit Council is a great place to start your career. The office is small and you do get to know everyone fairly well. It's a great opportunity to learn how SC state government works and learn the "ins and outs" of performance auditing (basically a form of management consulting). Also, it's pretty low-stress and you can pretty much take time off whenever you wish.

    Cons

    1) There is little to no growth. After your initial raise following your one year anniversary, don't expect any raise or promotion (outside of the legislatively mandated "cost-of-living" increase you may or may not get every few years that applies to all state employees) for at least 5-10 years. The agency is very "top-heavy" --meaning the management doesn't retire. This means there are hardly ever promotions.
    2) The salaries are terrible after a few years. The only state that pays its legislative auditors less is Hawaii.
    3) The agency hardly ever pays for training; so forget about getting any certifications or out of state conferences paid for from this agency. Good training is not a priority here.
    4) Micro-management is the name of the game with nearly every single audit; so for every audit.
    5) For an agency whose job it is to make state agencies more efficient and embraces "best business practices", it does not practice what it preaches. The IT/computer equipment is sub-par, there is no leadership from the top, and management has no vision for the future either for the agency or the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Pay your people more....like an average of 15-20k more at every level. Everyone at the agency knows we aren't paid well enough.
    2) Pay for training. If someone, no matter if it's 1 or 15 people, wants to get certifications that will benefit the agency (i.e. CFA, CPA, CIA, CFE, etc), pay for it! it's called investing in your staff! If you want your staff to have more competency in certain areas, you have two options. Pay people enough to take a job here, or (the cheaper option) pay for your current staff to get those competencies/certifications.
    3) Management needs to learn how to manage and lead people; not just yell at them and tell micro-manage their work.
    4) A real line must be drawn between management and auditing. Please read this to mean that management should not be having their hands in every audit, nor should auditors be forced to answer to two audit managers.
    6) Management needs to stop being afraid of asking for decent funding from the legislature.
    7) When it comes down to it: the pay sucks; there is no leadership; management blatantly doesn't care about the staff; there are hardly ever promotions, and if you work here, you will not break $50,000 in salary for at least 8-10 years.
