    Current Employee - Forensic Scientist I in Saint Paul, MN

    I have been working at Minnesota Department of Public Safety full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free access to quality training on the clock, competitive pay, good benefits, job security, work that really impacts people positively, prestige.

    Cons

    This may not be widespread, but the management in some areas is clique-y and can use bullying tactics. Negative feedback is presented in an untimely and unspecific fashion. A negative impression can never be overcome. No opportunity for lateral transfer and poor guidelines for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be afraid of highly skilled employees. They can make you look good.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for learning. Saw several autopsies, went on investigative ride-alongs where arrests took place, visited a prison for a training session, watched crime scene videos. Great missing persons department.

    Cons

    Some of the managers were not very helpful. Did a lot of filing for POR. No compensation.
