    Pros

    The people are dedicated, intelligent and hardworking. I have been lucky to have good managers all the way up the chain. The work in my area (scientific) is challenging and engaging. Great place for professional growth lots of opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Salary, Salary, Salary! The state in general is not competitive in this area. Merit raises are almost nonexistent. No cost of living raises during lean budget years. When we do receive cost of living raises they are usually around 2% and are set by the legislature. The only way to see significant salary increases is through promotions. Having a tight budget makes managing very challenging at times. As you move up work/life balance shifts more to the working side.

    Advice to Management

    Communication has improved throughout. Keep innovating and moving forward.
