    Current Employee - Customer Manager  in  Saint Paul, MN
    Current Employee - Customer Manager in Saint Paul, MN

    Pros

    Benefits are strong, as would be with most state governments roles.

    Cons

    Lack of training, budget and complete lack of vision. With rotating leadership, can states really create better systems? People fear change, so they under budget or over inflate their needs to create a system that they(the individual) thinks will keep his or her budget dollars flowing. This coupled with the fact that before, during , and after every election as scramble occurs to gain understanding of the newest administration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I dont know if advice could work, but after working here less than a year... I see why people in the general public find state employee lazy and lacking in quality.
