    I worked at State of Minnesota full-time

    Pros

    The State of Minnesota's benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Revolving door. Management-led culture and values don't encourage seasoned state HR staff to work there and it's very difficult for new employees to master the steep learning curve to be effective, particularly given the shortage of experienced staff to mentor them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more tolerant of individual differences and listen to the employee and customer concerns voiced in recent focus groups and surveys. Lead by positive example to build MMB's statewide credibility as an employer of choice. Walk your talk.
