Casual Dress Code
Good communication from governor and senior level management

Cons

No communication between lower level management and employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The lower level management needs to communicate more the employees. Employees should not have to go out of their way to find out simple information!!

    I have been working at Virginia Department of Taxation

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Low stress. Telework is standard. Upper management is excellent. Virtually impossible to get fired even if you should be. By the nature of the work it is near impossible to work a true 40 hour week. I used to average about 30 and was trying hard to work 40. Most field auditors get a state car and high speed internet connection along with a laptop that can be used non work hours(not the car just the computer & internet). If you get one of the good districts you will feel self employed however none of the above apply to Northern VA where the supervisors suck because of micro management. You must try to get the job in central or southern VA where the good supervisors are stationed. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is way below the average for accounting professionals. CPA's and tax attorneys can double or triple the salary about anywhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay and have the supervisors in the southern districts train the other field supervisors.

    I have been working at Virginia Department of Taxation full-time

    Pros

    Lots of training, Casual Fridays, Temporary state employee status

    Cons

    Extreme supervision, they try to scare and threaten you about any form of disclosure of federal information making you sound like an idiot while talking to callers that cannot be verified for certain accounts. They lay off people constantly. Zero communication between management and call center employees. Most supervisors work from home--cannot forward escalated calls, must do "call backs". Ridiculous fees for parking at both locations (one of which is just a parking lot without a security guard). A lot of uncertainty w/ regard to state budget.
