    I worked at State of Indiana full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are processes and procedures in place for IOT, which is good. There are a lot of intelligent people with good ideas. Training is usually provided if you request it and it can be budgeted. Depending on the manager, you could have flexibility in scheduling.

    Cons

    The department is very management heavy. It goes through phases during elections where they will eliminate a lot of managers, but then it seems like the next time there are even more. The department has put the technology in silos and management does not really know or care about the skill sets of the employees. Some of the managers do not seem to realize that they are managing people and not robots.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and listen to them. Treat your employees like the skilled workers they are instead of just pawns on a chess board.

    I have been working at State of Indiana full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are somewhat good. The deductible are too high. you are locked in specific networks.

    Cons

    The simple idea of the large volume of work. It is crisis that management is extremely clueless on having attainable expectations from employees. This is the reasons why the public has faith in government processes.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to involve all the employees especially the support staff on the decision making about their goals. you can not grow a tree from the top.

    I have been working at State of Indiana (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, pension which is unheard of at other jobs nowadays, time off is plentiful, plenty of room for growth! I've promoted 3 times in the last two years! After 5 yrs u get three weeks of vacation, 3 personal days and 9 sick days. Yes we are paid less but time off and working 37.5 hrs makes up for that.

    Cons

    Pay is less. I dont really have any cons. There are some workers that are there for a paycheck only but you have that anywhere you work!

    Advice to Management

    Promote your good workers and don't be afraid to discipline dead weight workers.
