I have been working at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Job security, great retirement/pension plan, good health insurance provided at retirement, union protection for non-management staff, downtown location, 37.5 hour work week (no "extended" hours), flexible work hours, work from home possible one day per week, 4-day work week possible, vested in defined-benefits pension after 10 years

Cons

Dealing with politicians and bureaucratic red tape, downtown location, no parking, less-than-average vacation time, lower salaries than comparable private sector positions, occasional dealing with below-average motivated colleagues, limited opportunities to attend employer-paid conferences and professional development training/events (due to budgetary limitations)

    Had an extremely unorganized and unprofessional intern experience here.

    Former Employee - Accounting Intern in Boston, MA

    I worked at Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I was an accounting intern for the Treasury in 2011. It was unpaid, but I learned a lot, and the people who work there are friendly and passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    The only real negative about working there was that the internship was unpaid, but I knew that going in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Maybe a transportation compensation package would work. It was a little frustrating having to pay to commute and not get paid.
