I worked at State of Michigan full-time for less than a year

Pros

Salary, benefits, and even time for volunteering!

Cons

Political challenges, even though it should be a neutral environment if management does not like you for any reason whatsoever, you are not going to stay employed there. You will not have a chance to move to another department once a bad review is written up.

    Current Employee - Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor  in  Oak Park, MI
    Current Employee - Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor in Oak Park, MI

    I have been working at State of Michigan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, great managers, helping people of all walks of life. Very professional colleagues who are easy to work with and make work enjoyable. We are like family. We encourage one another to develop our skills further and then train others in our office.

    Cons

    Sometimes you'd like to turn some difficult people away, and then you realize that's why they are there to see you... When you work for the public sector, there are no fringe benefits, only a salalry, paid timeoff, and great medical. No free passes to yoga, discounts on flights or cars, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the great work!
