    I have been working at State of Vermont full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits Great pay (for Vermont) Job Security

    Cons

    Job Security - all you need to not get fired is do the bare minimum. If you hate working with people who are like that then you won't want to work here. Clicky - If you are friends or at least on good terms with your management then you have an easy life. If not they make your life hell.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, if you set rules stick with them.

    I worked at State of Vermont full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Unusual mandatory unionization of all workers including most professional staff resulted in limiting number of actual hours worked/week.

    Cons

    General support departments seemed understaffed or disorganized (HR, IT, etc). Siloed organizationally, Low technical competence and no culture of online collaboration and info sharing. Overall lack of accountability and quantifiable metrics.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Rock solid job security, regular raises, generous benefit package, on-going training opportunities, small enough that you can know everyone in your department

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement in a low population state, unless you are willing to move to the state capital. Supervision is sometimes lax.

    Advice to Management

    Basically, keep up the good work. The mix of duties in the local offices keeps the job from getting stale.
