    Reward high achievers, It is hard when they have to show folks who make more than they do how to do their job.
    Make evaluations stand for something and let staff evaluate their supervisors.

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

    Pros

    good retirement and health benifits

    Cons

    Full of mediocre middle management and abusive supervisors. Salaries are overinflated for managers and directors, the little people are paid peanuts. Negative reinforcement is the management style, ignorance of complaints and inflexible and rigorous are the rules and policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trying treating people like human beings. Realize that your need to take care of the engine's components in order for it to functions at its' best
