    I have been working at Paterson, NJ full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and working for government

    Good for people with small children

    Cons

    A lot!

    Do not expect to be promoted ever! Some people have been on the same position for over 20 years without a chance of promotion. They rather hire outsiders and give them higher salaries, they rather hire consultants than promote within.

    Do not stay here more than a few years or you will get stuck doing more and more work without the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring outsiders and promote within, not that y'all would ever read this. There's a reason why Paterson has bad rep. There is so much ineptitude.
