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

    Pros

    Depending on your role, you really can engage in activities that affect the public positively. There's room for everyone to participate in legislative changes to make improvements. I've stayed for 20+ years because it has always been interesting, challenging, and gratifying.

    Cons

    You have to want public service, because there are many political pressures, and detractors. Sometimes, it's challenging to handle unhappy public when we've done everything the law authorizes us to do. Self care is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Political appointees in executive office versus career department employees. Sometimes the two are too disconnected and don't communicate meaningfully.
