    I worked at State of South Dakota full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    welcoming, decent health care benefit plans, most people are very friendly and provide an enjoyable working environment, small agencies (can be good or very, very bad depending on circumstance!)

    Cons

    Very low pay, close minded to change, little opportunity for advancement, be careful if you're not "in" with someone- they can manipulate the system to their personal benefit and your GONE!

    I have been working at State of South Dakota

    Pros

    Good vacation time. Average bennefits. Can usually get time off when requested.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to similar jobs elsewhere. There is almost no chance of advancement. Management does not encourage or seek out innovation. Status quot is the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Right to work should not mean right to terminate and lord it over employees.
