OK. Not as good as it used to be.

Pros

Working for the state at least you have job security. Once you pass the 1 year probation that is. 2 weeks vacation per year, major holidays off. That's about it.

Cons

The pay is lower than the private sector or even the county. State employees have been abused by pay cuts and furloughs. Longevity and cost of living increases have been frozen for years. Health benefits have been seriously reduced. Promotions are very "Carson" centric. If you live in Las Vegas most likely you will be screwed with promotions because it always seems someone in Carson gets it. It's happened to me multiple times. Employees that were lower level or been with the state for less were promoted because they do not move positions down to Las Vegas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not much management can do. It's all politics.

    Pros

    There is pension to look forward to if you can stomach 30 years.

    Cons

    Not enough pay for what you have to deal with. Case load is unreasonable. Despite being a "trainee" for a year, once you get to an office, you are on your own and actually getting any guidance is impossible despite the constant aura of micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
