I have been working at State of Iowa full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, including holidays and vacation/sick leave.

Cons

Politics plays a huge role in what we do. An election can totally change the course of the office overnight.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a tough job. But thanks for trying to make so many people happy - it can't always be fun.

    I have been working at State of Iowa

    Pros

    Working for the state I derive satisfaction from helping the citizens of Iowa and hearing their positive feedback when we help them navigate the bureaucracy.

    Cons

    The direction and priorities of the office blows in the wind with election of new governors and representatives every election cycle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the focus of your agency about helping the people of Iowa and not trying to save your own job after every election cycle. Its an honor to serve the people of Iowa, act like it.
