I have been working at State of Michigan full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Decent Pay, Decent Benefits, Low-Pressure, Opportunities to Advance
Good work/life balance, great ascending pay scales, $10+ per hour difference from starting pay scale to top of pay scale. Takes 6 years to move from bottom to top.
Occasional Raises based on who the Gov. is.

Cons

Processes and Procedures are stifling and frustrate the work flow.
Lot's of people are just filling chairs.
Easy for dead-beats to hide out and never have to do much work.
Management has very little recourse for dealing with poor performing employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to make the hard decisions and take responsibility for them.

    I worked at State of Michigan full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The State of Michigan has good benifits, and the pay is great.

    Cons

    You are constantly told you will be fired. Management did not take the time to help. The Union is of no help prior to 1 year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your older workers a chance. We have experience and are dedicated to our job. It's not fair to judge all over 50 from past experience.
