    I have been working at State of Ohio full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are paid at a fair rate for what we do. The step increases get you to a great rate of pay.

    Cons

    Outside of Columbus there you have to push for development and training. Most of it is on your own time. There is no succession planning for your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone is very motivated and wants to be lead to become a supervisor or go into management help them develope a succession plan for the next 2 years of their career. Don't develope a leadership team and never follow through for those who are craving learning and training.

    Some advice I would give management is to listen to your staff they know the clients better than you do because they work with the clients everyday all day.
