    The benefit here is good. Health insurance is OK. There is paid vacation leave and sick leave. The benefit is much better than the company I worked before.

    The worst thing is that the States Retirement plan comes out of your check whether you like it or not! So, between taxes and the retirement plan. Your check has a deduction of $600 or more. So the promised monthly salary goes done from $2460.00 to 1960.00 and you only get paid the first of every month. Honestly, that is a hard salary to live on with two kids.

    the insurance is good and it's one of the only jobs left with a pension plan--they have a pretty high match percentage.

    Having worked in the private sector again after leaving the State in 2015, I can tell you that the benefits package available to all full time state employees is almost not available anywhere in the current private job market.
