    Pros

    Very secure employment compared to other IT jobs in the private sector. It is a very large organization so you have plenty of opportunites to move to different positions. The benefits are very good, plenty of vacation and sick time. The salary is very good for the Lansing area and there is on-call pay plus overtime so there is no incentive to work one employee 70 or 80 hours a week. Since the IT department for the state is centralized you get a good chance to work in a very large IT infrastructure so you get to experience a very complex environment. You get to leave your work at work when you go home, it is a very low stress environment.

    Cons

    Very laxed time management, many employees show up late very often. This causes the employees that show up on time to received more of the workload. There is very little reward that your manager can give you for doing your job well and very little corrective action that they can take to get employees to improve. All employees get the same pay and step increases regardless of their performance. Due to the low employee turnover rate, there is very little documentation left by employees so if you take over new systems you have a difficult time figuring out how they work. Lots of very old legacy systems to support adds to the problem with lack of documentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to create and environment where hard work and learning are rewarded.

    Flexible hours
    Challenging work

    Cons

    Limited training opportunities
    Partial tuition reimbursement program

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more training opportunities to employees. It is unfair that we have to pay out of pocket for training when we make less than what is paid in the private industry for the same job.
