State Auditor's

Assistant State Auditor (Current Employee)

ProsGreat flexibility, great work/life balance, they only expect you to put in your 40 hours, flex-schedules are available, extensive opportunities to see the inner workings of state and local governments, and to present information to elected officials in public meetings.

ConsThe career track is limited if you want to get exposure to different types of auditing. Promotions can come quick until you get to the first step in management. At that point, openings are limited, competitive, and partially driven by politics. It is possible to work here for an entire career and not go into management if that is what you want, but compensation is limited if you do that.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on expanding the types of auditing done so staff can become more well-rounded in their experiences. Sure, this makes them more attractive to other employers but it also builds their strengths.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
