I have been working at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great people to work with, always nice and friendly. Much free time to do other school work or surf the internet.

Cons

Often confusion on exactly what to do. The overall topics were not very interesting and at times very tedious and boring. Very isolated from any real work and interaction

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more structure for interns

    I have been working at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work is not overwhelming and can be challenging at times with many projects to work on if you can get assigned to them.

    Cons

    Many starts and stops can become very frustrating. Not all but too many managers are talking heads who take undue credit and pass blame way too often with no accountability or discipline for bad work. Much more than in the private sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IMHO, the remaining vestiges of worthless management left here to walk around acting busy with their narcissistic need to tell everyone how busy their life is are useless and expendable. OK, not all but too many of them. They take all the credit for work they didn't -and can't- do. They puff up their fictitious and useless accomplishments and regurgitate this drivel interminably to every unsuspecting hostage they can corner. Some of them have already jumped ship and hopefully you can get rid of the remainder of this bane of moral before you lose a lot of conscientious, talented, and hard working people.
