Running on Ice

Unemployment Insurance Analyst (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at State of Michigan full-time for more than 5 years

Prosgood pay, benefits. Rewarding experience to be of service the State. Technology in workplace is improving.

Consdue to political nature, meaning actual Politics, ever changing workplace with no set goals. Salary is paid by Federal government, but you are treated as either a State or Federal employee depending on which is easier for Management to justify questionable, often dishonest, decisions. Management will not support you. Usual problems with Union jobs: no matter how hard you work or skilled you are you co-worker makes the same as you, Union is simply more politics.

Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency. Understand 'metrics' are more complicated in public sector- the level or rework constantly increases. Listen to lower Management who know the work since upper management are essentially 'appointed positions.' Show integrity.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
