    Pros

    The benefits are adequate and the jobs are stable once you have acquired tenure. You have a routine that can get chaotic at times, but it's mostly the same.

    Cons

    You'll be working under the management of one of the oldest group of supervisors you will see in any industry. It's almost impossible to find someone who has adjusted with the times and you'll regularly find high ranking supervisors who have trouble with programs like Excel and Word. This is an outdated position that's been phased out by most insurance companies in favor of statistical modeling and risk analysis, but NYSIF keeps rolling.

    Advice to Management

    Luckily the position is sheltered from industry trends and advancement by the government, but eventually even glaciers move. The position has become obsolete, but even older managers are still keeping it alive. Maybe it's best just to tear the bandaid off and move with the times.

    Pros

    The benefits are great, co-workers are generally good people. Were it not for the benefits I would be long gone.

    Cons

    Not a lot of mobility, and you have to be on the civil service list and reachable to even be considered for a position you qualify for, unless you know someone in a position of power (political appointee)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff input and build morale in the office.

    Pros

    Some of my co-workers, decent salary.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. Lack of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like the adults they are and not children who may spill the family secrets. Involve the people who do the actual work to have a voice in the decision making as it is they who are affected.
