    A good place not to work, if you want to work and be successful

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Yorktown Heights, NY

    Prosbeing outdoors and enjoying the scenery, the overall area is nice. If you are useless and don't want to work, and can master looking busy for 8-10-12hours at a time you'll do fine.

    ConsIt is a state agency built on incompetence and nepotism, failure is rewarded and hanging around is a sure way to be promoted, regardless of previous criminal suspicions. This as famously put in some business/management classes is a benevolent employer, in which you can not be fired, and as put by other observers, some one has to hire these people they are basically unemployable elsewhere. The pay seriously lags behind the private sector and is at times laughable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart fresh with new young, honest talent

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good for seasonal employees, not for full-time.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits and since it is part of the state there is equality among employees and all information was readily available.

    ConsIssues with compensation and some upper level management had you pulling your hair out at their incompetence but that was it.
