Real people!

Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

ProsAfter 15 years in corporate America, I came to work for the State and haven't looked back. If you visit any state agency, you see real people, of all ages, genders, ethnicities, colors, and abilities. They are devoted and work with a lot of passion. Money isn't the driving force for most. Instead, they get a lot of meaning from helping those they serve. In other words, these look like people in my neighborhood. Plus, it's a place where you don't feel like a pariah if you are over forty and/or are a person with a disability. My work is meaningful and I can see that already it's making a positive difference in the lives of the people I serve.

ConsYes, the salaries aren't as high as they are in most corporate jobs and, wherever there are people, there are politics. However, those are the only downsides I've encountered -- and they are not major downsides at all. I have to park far, far away, but, the nice thing is, that with all of that daily exercise I've given up my health club membership!

Advice to Senior ManagementCan't think of anything.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    stuck in the slow lane

    Customer Manager (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    I have been working at State of Minnesota full-time for less than a year

    Pros: Benefits are strong, as would be with most state governments… 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… Advice to Senior Management: I dont know if advice could work, but after working here less than a year...… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
