Pros

Great Benifits I like the retirement (if I make it that long). The people I work with is great. Health Benifits is good to go.

Cons

The salary is 30 % lower than the private sector. promotion is hard cause when people get in the higher paying positions... they stay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let's work on getting the moral up. with the furloughs and unknowns about budget changes., employee motivation has taken a hit. remember we rep....

    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.
