    Stable, but no rewards

    Program Specialist II (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThere is some flexibility with work schedules, such as 4x10's, etc, but it depends on your job assignment.
    There is also some flexibility with exercise time.
    The fast accumulation of annual and sick leave help you make sure you can take a vacation here and there.

    ConsHard work is not rewarded, so you end up with people that just do the bare minimum.
    There is little opportunity for raises unless you keep changing jobs - to a higher paying one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward your good employees.

    Good but not great

    Wildland Firefighter (Current Employee) Draper, UT

    ProsGreat experience on fire. Good people in high places. The two guys that run the place are good people and great to work with when you get the chance.

    Conslower management no good. This is hard to get by because you spend months together out on fires. I did two seasons with 3 different crew bosses. Did not have one crew boss who was good to work for. We had lots of experience on different fires but it was hard with difficult crew bosses.

    Extremely stable, little opportunity.

    Office Technician (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsEmployees of the State of Utah receive great health benefits and a 401k with great matching offerings. The locations of the offices in Salt Lake are great and provide parking in the downtown area that are available after hours.

    ConsTerrible pay, extremely slow and few advancement opportunities. Much like advancement, it takes forever for people that deserve to be fired to be let go.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out from under the shell and make the necessary waves to motivate and reward your workforce.
