    Pros

    Most of the coworkers helpful, friendly.

    Cons

    Can be a little like "Lord of the Flies"
    Branch Managers can be vindictive, lack leadership qualities
    Pay was low, now it's worse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does not live by the golden rule. Huge pay increases for you, employees get our jobs cut. We all work hard and to outsource us ostensibly to save money conflicts with the huge salaries you men are making. We are taking a pay cut and our employment with the state has been cut, while other (current) state employees get raises. Think about what that does to morale and motivation.
