    I worked at State of Washington

    Pros

    There are lots of different department, supervisors, etc. so things may be different elsewhere, but where I was there was no threat to the stability of employment, lots of time off, good benefits, etc.

    Cons

    Pay was about 40% below comparable private sector positions (IT).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are not offering gold standard pensions any longer, pay accordingly to retain people.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
