I worked at State of Arizona

Pros

Training - was probably the best place to work to get professional certifications. They were good about professional associations in yoru field, as well.

Cons

There is a lot of truth to the idea that state workers don't seem to want to work as hard. However, on the management side, that is where the hard work and dedicated people were.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The state needs to attract and retain good quality workers. They do this on the training side, but when an employee is ready to move up in the ranks, there are no opportunities. This needs to change.

    I have been working at State of Arizona

    Pros

    Benefit packages are good and offer a variety of options. Premiums are good compared to private industry. Before the economy tanked, it was nearly impossible to lose your job.

    Cons

    Management is often appointed based on political favors, and may not know a thing about the agency he/she is put in charge of. There is little transparency. Because of the economy and a ridiculously right-wing, bible-thumping legislature, jobs are left at the whims of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put leaders in place that have training, proven competency in their field, and a plan and vision. Discourage micromanaging.
