    I have been working at State of Illinois full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a few good competent people who carry the weight of the incompetent and lazy staff.

    Cons

    The many Incompetent people are impossible to eliminate as higher level management are afraid of the unions and their political connections. No salary adjustments........ for mid-managers who usually make far less money sometimes in the thousands less than the people they supervise. Top leadership promote friends and don't always follow the employment rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to look closely at the senior management of all the agencies and make radical changes if they expect to make any effective changes at the grass root level.
