    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.
