Pros

I really enjoy my co-workers and the casual/laid-back feel. We get our work done, but we don't feel too stressed either.

Cons

May be difficult transitioning to the private sector after an extended time in a public position. It will take awhile to get acclimated to the private pace of things.

Advice to Management

Nothing. Great place

    Pros

    Lots of holidays that's about all the good I can say

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. Project are picked to satisfy someone's whim rather than focusing on what needs to be done


  2. Intern, Great Experience, not for me

    I worked at State of Illinois as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some great people who work here that do not fall into typical state worker description. Very laid back atmosphere with very little stress.

    Cons

    Lack of motivation from many employees can make for some long days. Many of the processes are very bureaucratic and make it nearly impossible to change. Union environment is not conducive to productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Getting more motivated people on the bus will make the whole process much better.
