    I worked at Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts full-time

    Pros

    Hours are flexible; you meet a lot of nice people on audit engagements; training is provided to meet CPE hours; casual dress code when not on audit site

    Cons

    Athens Regional office supervisor is unbearable to work for. Overly demanding and non appreciative of hard work and extra hours. And there is no one to appeal to or file a grievance with about unfair treatment. Focus is only on the negative and positive achievements are not acknowledged. You are expected to take on the role and assignments of higher level positions without sufficient time or training to grow into these assignments. However, promotion to a higher level is dangled before you on a string and is not awarded unless you achieve perfection - perfection as perceived by said supervisor. Although you earn 3-4 weeks of vacation per year, you are only allowed to take 1 week. There are constant threats that if your performance does not meet the expectations of the supervisor that your job is in jeopardy.
    Socializing with co-workers in any form or fashion is frowned upon. Even so minor as stopping by a colleagues office to ask how their child performed in last night's t-ball game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should put supervisors in place who have management/people skills and training and not just auditing skills.

    graduate-educated staff

    Cons

    it's state government- so salary is limited. though it is fairly high for state government.
    Staff are not the most social
    Performance evaluations and management should better weed out persons that are poor contributors, or at least ensure that high-performers are not discouraged by having to work with t hem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get better at getting rid of dead weight to keep the talent level high.
