I worked at State of Arizona

Pros

In the past the benefits and retirement plan were great. If you work hard you can contribute, advance and get new opportunities, depending on the area in which you work.

Cons

The salary level is not always competitive with the private sector or other government units. If you want to move to the private sector you're always fighting the popular perception that government workers don't have a good work ethic or are out of touch with industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I had good experiences with State of Arizona management, however more could be done through budget and policy to promote a better quality work environment.
