    I have been working at Massachusetts Department of Revenue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay. Low hours. Flexible hours. Solid benefits.

    Cons

    It's government. If you are ambitious and want your career to advance as you take on more challenges and prove yourself, you will go absolutely nuts here.

    You will not be rewarded for doing really good work or doing more work than others. The person sitting next to you, who is doing the same exact job, does 1/10th the amount of work, is really bad at their job and would have been fired if it was the private sector, can be getting paid 20k more than you just because they have been there forever.

    Advice to Management

    no point in giving advice, it's not management's fault, nothing can change, it's government.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Massachusetts Department of Revenue (Fall River, MA) in April 2019.

    Interview

    The interview lasted about an hour. Met with the Director and a Senior Manager. Questions did not focus too heavily on my background and experience, but rather seemed to be more of a pop quiz on tax laws and regulations. The Director made some off color remarks that seemed to embarrass the Senior Manager, which I thought was very unprofessional. Never heard back one way or another. I took a lot of time to prepare and make arrangements for this interview and it would be nice to get a brief follow-up email explaining that I'm not being considered for the position. From what I have heard from colleagues in state government, this is typical behavior with this state agency.
