Overall, balanced work life

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe up side to working for the state is that you are able to balance your work and personal life with relative ease. While it's not unheard of to put in more than 40 hours a week, it's not a regularly expected norm, either. Many offices are flexible with telecommuting options, also.

ConsThe worst part about working for the state is the unions. Although they can do good, they also cause problems when moving from one position to another. You may not get the pay increase you would normally expect. Also, it's difficult to see where there is money wasted, understand why people complain, and have there be little you can do about it.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork to develop a merit based pay system the union will agree with.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
