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

Pros

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

Cons

due 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 ManagementAdvice

Transparency. 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.

    Current Employee - Construction Co-op in Sterling Heights, MI

    I have been working at State of Michigan as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As an intern, I learned a lot, especially on the construction site. The employees the enjoy working there and appreciate their jobs are the best to learn from. Great work environment.

    Cons

    Too many people were there that don't really do anything. Of course, this is typical of a government job, but there are many that are there just waiting for their retirements and benefits, knowing they have good job security.
