    Former Employee - Various Management in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at State of Arizona full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good health and dental benefits, good sick and vacation leave time accumulation.

    Cons

    Dealing with customers that think "they" pay your salary, like we as taxpayers don't contribute to our own salaries. Having to work for the latest political hack, or appointee who is given position of management, without qualifications necessary to perform job effectively. Having to deal with the hidden agendas of Legislators, who are only thinking of getting reelected, not the best outcome for the State.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember, this is supposed to be representation of the "people", not just special interests groups that fatten your wallets and campaign coffers. Make managers more personally responsible for their actions, quit hiding behind the shield of government immunity.

    I worked at State of Arizona full-time

    Pros

    Good benefit package and access to retirement planning. Multiple opportunities to advance if you choose to pursue them.

    Cons

    Noncompetitive salary levels and very few raises. Frequent salary and hiring freezes. Inability and/or unwillingness of management to dismiss nonproductive or counterproductive employees from positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the people who do not want to be there or who are not able to competently do the job as it should be done.
