    I worked at South Carolina Department of Revenue full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work/life balance is probably a top reason to work here. After my first month of getting in the swing of things at my job, I was given the opportunity to tweak my schedule a bit. Yes, it made some weeks long, but in the long run, it was nice to get a couple of extra hours "off". My work center was great and everyone was very friendly and familial. Miss working here.

    Cons

    Depending on what we were working on, it could get stressful, but nothing one cannot handle. Everyone is very team-oriented.

    I have been working at South Carolina Department of Revenue full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits. Above average health and life insurance. Good retirement. Great hours to work (only have to work 37.5 hrs/wk to be full time). Flex on time. Can get reimbursed for continuing education.

    Cons

    Some management micro manage while others work very well with their employees. Toss up of what type you get when you hire on. Benefits make it worth the ok to poor supervisors. Also have ability to apply and move up in ranks as you get experience.
    Most job require a 4 year college degree, but starting salary does not reflect this. Need to evaluate what the worker does or has to do to complete their daily work and pay accordingly.
    I'm currently in a position that requires the same type of experience and education of a position that has a starting salary of $5,000/yr more than mine. Please reconsider some of these unequallies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to try and treat all workers the same. The hard workers tend to get lump in the same category as the poor to bad workers. Pay attention to who's worker and who's not and give the good workers a better(much better) evaluation and raise.
    This is really the only complaint I have. All in all, typical governement job with typical state wages; but the benefits really help to want to keep your job.

    Pros

    Stable 9-5 work. Never work on holidays.

    Cons

    Confined to a cubicle all day. Bad heating/AC in the building. Many employees wear winter coats/blankets inside. Long time employees tend not to be up to speed with technology. Everyone is on a career path that leads to management, so the most unlikely (or unpleasant) people become managers. Great place to work if you just want a job where you go in, do your work quietly, keep a tight lip and clock out. It's a rather odd little community.

    It's alright for a first job, but not a career.

    Pros

    They will give you a chance for a job out of college. Most of the employees are extremely laid back.

    Cons

    If you actually work hard most of your hard work will go unnoticed. Senior management is fairly incompetent and really has no clue as how stuff runs.

    There are not really that many cons about working at the dept. of. rev. because the pay is good and you learn a lot

    Keep up the good work and also keep bringing donuts to status meetings because that is very enjoyable for sure
