I have been working at State of Utah full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Working for the State of Utah generally provides stable employment, and your coworkers will typically be wonderful people, at least in my experience.

Cons

Working for the State of Utah historically has had great government benefits: health care, defined pension benefit plan, etc. however these have been steadily eroded by the legislature in recent years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The State of Utah is doing better financially than the vast majority of State governments in the country, so the recent erosion in salary and benefits is puzzling. If continued, the State will accelerate the loss of institutional memory and quality employees.

    I have been working at State of Utah full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helping families change is rewarding. I have made some good friends in the office. We go and eat lunch together and try to support each other.

    Cons

    We haven't had a raise in 5 years and then we got a 1% raise. Don't feel real supported by management. They are not afraid to fire people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more supportive. Show workers they are doing well.

    I have been working at State of Utah full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    No "call off" due to patient census; retirement plan; sick time accrual; holiday time; vacation time.

    Cons

    Increased costs of benefits; understaffed; 3-4 month hiring process, then another two months training before staff can actually work; unable to have a word in any decisions. Some administrators do not listen to suggestions from some employees, but will to their "favorites". An atmosphere of distrust among employees toward administration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all of the employees, not just the few. Get rid of the nepotism.
