I can't recommend it at this time. However, it is a new organization and is having growing pains.

I have been working at State of Oregon

Pros

I have a steady job.

Cons

Senior leadership is arrogant and disrespectful. They consider staff a dime a dozen. They are more concerned with power and politics than with the clients we are to serve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a clue and come down to earth. You are not superior to others.

    I worked at State of Oregon

    Pros

    Serve the people in my State and community
    Great benefits package
    Low pressure environment
    Some telecommuting is allowed
    Clear mission

    Cons

    Budget constraints are high and the fallout is hard
    Little opportunity for advancement
    Union involvement creates as many problems as it solves
    Certain agencies like DAS are a nightmare of political subterfuge, while others like DEQ are pleasant and some areas with very good middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When cuts are required, they should be a percentage across the entire State of all agencies, not allowing certain large agencies to essentially go unscathed, while the smaller agencies get hit--hard.
