    I have been working at Commonwealth of Virginia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leave policy is generous, so for those with small children the ability to be present for school activities is good. Not going to work weekends (office clears out after 8 hours) definitely very structured. There are not a lot of questions when it comes to policies; every conceivable iteration has been planned for.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. No scheduled increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more free-thought.

    I worked at Commonwealth of Virginia

    Pros

    Working for the state was a valuable career-expanding experience. The continued opportunities for classroom and on-the-job training were excellent, and I had the freedom to expand my knowledge in a variety of functional areas. The various agencies are very collaborative, so I was able to build a strong professional network that still lasts to this day. The Commonwealth of Virginia provides great avenues of support for its employees to become involved with professional associations and obtain certifications, so I was constantly learning new and relevant information.

    Cons

    Sometimes the flow of customers was so heavy that it made it difficult to catch up on administrative tasks, but I was fortunate to have very supportive coworkers and supervisors.
