Pros

Short Commute
Never Bring Work Home, day starts and ends at designated times
Low Stress

Cons

Not Challenging, no one wants to make improvements to the process
Lack of Flexibility with regard time, no flex time or work/life accommodations
Would like better vacation plan, only get two weeks as a State Employee
Performance Recognition is pre-designed so you can work really hard and do great things but you will receive the same recognition/compensation as someone doing the bare minimum.

Advice to Management

Start operating like a business with a customer service mentality and reward staff for exceeding expectations.

    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 Management

    Have more structure for interns
