Pros

Fair pay and benefits. Unfortunately there is a five year vesting period and ten years to collect. Also, there is no medical benefits after retirement. They just cut you off. Better off to work for state government.

Cons

Just like most government jobs, tons of paperwork and red tape to get even the most simple request completed. That all said, I would suggest that you look elsewhere for employment. Management sucks with a BIG S. Do yourself a favor and if you can get a job elsewhere, do so. I am so happy now that I have moved on to a different department. One of the worst managers I have ever met.

Advice to Management

Make it mandated that all supervisors and manager (at all levels) take several classes on how to supervise and manage staff.

    Pros

    As with most companies, Some employees are great and enthusiastic to help and are the true backbone of what customer service represents. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Currently working for overt Narcissist and micro manager which appears to be supported by upper management. Very depressing environment. Of course there are a few "UNION" members that complain over almost everything.

    Advice to Management

    Should perform personality evaluations and force managers to attend training sessions on how to treat employees.

    Pros

    paycheck, benefits, holidays, some of the people are cool

    Cons

    poor training, poor supervisors, people afraid to do anything in case they get fired. Poor morale, I could go on and on. Just don't do it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire supervisors who know the job of their subordinates AND that have people skills and a real desire to see their workers excel in their jobs.
