    I have been working at State of New Mexico full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and rewarding work with the public. Working for the state certainly has its ups and downs, but it's very rewarding and challenging. Somewhat decent pay in technical positions, much better pay in management positions. Do a little time and move up. Management of employees can be challenging, but overall this is a terrific job with a lot of opportunity. Lots of vacation time and holidays. Most of the people who work here are wonderful and supportive. I truly love working here after many years in the private sector.

    Cons

    no merit raises unless you take/get a promotion. Sometimes you must leave a job that you love in order to make more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that good people leave jobs (transfer) that they love in order to make more money. This is not a sustainable culture. When people with institutional knowledge must leave for a few more dollars an hour, that is a problem. Keep supporting the lower management and technical staff.

    I have been working at State of New Mexico

    Pros

    Holidays off, snow days, and benefits

    Cons

    It seems like many of the workers slack. They don't come in on time but the first to pack up 5-10 mins before five so they can walkout right as the clock hits 5. Some people don't even seem capable of their job but get paid top dollar just because they know the bosses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more emphasis on work ethics. Expect more out of employees as well as more strict with bad work ethics. These people are paid by and work for the citizens but often times use the time for things other than working.
