I have been working at State of Delaware full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The benefits are really good. This would be a career area for someone who is family oriented and wants to be there for their family.

Cons

the salary is not comparable to the economy and the overall work environment is either extremely slow or extremely overworked. There is really no balance.
