I have been working at Massachusetts Department of Public Health

Pros

easy to get time off when needed
core group of good co-workers
if you are willing to work hard and make things happen you are given freedom to do so

Cons

many have "state worker" attitude, protected by union
hard work is not rewarded, and is discouraged by people who had been there too long

Advice to ManagementAdvice

higher up management is good, the lower level direct supervisors of individual departments not great

    Cons

    It's very political, probably more than needs to be for the state health department. It's often difficult to understand the mast plan.
