    Pros

    The Commonwealth of Kentucky has excellent health and retirement benefits. People are treated well and there is ample sick leave and vacation. The managers try to do a good job and expectations of performance are reasonable.

    Cons

    Salaries are low relative to the private sector. The State is having budget problems so salary increases will be small. It will also be difficult to get a job for people not already hired. On the other hand, many people are retiring so new jobs may come available even though budgets are tight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job than the last administration
