Pros – Benefits package is decent, good vacation, sick leave. Flexible work hours.
Cons – Chaotic, lots of reorganization, jockeying for position. No opportunity for raises, advancement, etc. Entirely at the whim of the legislature for funding.
Advice to Senior Management – Better communication of activities, initiatives and objectives would go a long way. Also, less buffeting of staff when upper management decided to go jousting at each other.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros – Many employees are genuinely committed to the work they do and performing their duties with the utmost dilligence. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The work location in downtown Raleigh is very pleasant to work in.
Cons – Many of the middle management members in the agency are jaded and callous about their subordinate staff and overall improvement to the work flow of the agency. They sometimes malign their staff when they bring ideas for improvement or change to their leaders. Change is a necessity to improve. Many of the middle managers and some senior ones as well, avoid change like it's a deadly disease.
Advice to Senior Management – When you look in the mirror each day remember; change starts with you. Leadership is not a gimmick or an inspirational quote. It is seen, good or bad; and emulated by your staff. It takes courage to change and improve. It is human to be afraid sometimes and it is ok. It is not ok to turn a blind eye to your middle and junior management who steer efforts towards the status quo.
Some good examples of change that'll make a difference:
1. Take one day a month and be a shadow to one of your subordinate managers for the entire day.
Don't say much, just observe. Watch for what they do, what they don't do, how they do it and when they do it. You'll learn volumes of what your managers do good, bad and otherwise.
2. Next month do the same thing with one of the managers subordinates or sit in a cube in the section and don't announce your presence. Observe the work they do, how they interact and how they accomplish their daily tasks. Ask them for input on problems you see at the higher levels. Many times you'll see and hear things you'd not thought of.
