    I worked at New York State Department of Labor

    Pros

    Potential for a life time career with exceptional job security, top quality benefits and a chance to work in an environment that is very big on professional development.

    Cons

    Need to score well on the civil servants exam to be hired as a salaried employee. Hard to move up because many people are lifers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your employees have enough work to do, and dont be afraid to push them. Many people's skills are under utilized.
