    I have been working at State Compensation Insurance Fund full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    An admirable mission

    Benefits of state employment such as pension and "bank" holidays

    One of the best state employers considering a possible annual bonus, available training, how encouraging most departments are of employee development

    Cons

    Unless you are in HR or claims your next promotion is probably in an area where the cost of living too high to justify moving and prohibitively far for commuting.

    Few offered remote work options which exacerbates con#1.

    Culture of compliance limits innovation and agility. Most assume the person above them in the hierarchy has the answers without stress testing ideas or asking questions. This is probably true of most organizations to be fair.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the vision, deliver the tools the frontline needs, and get out of the way. While you may think employees are risk adverse and set in old ways, there is enough age, race, and life experience diversity for innovation when employees are empowered. Share information freely. What current projects can passionate frontline people contribute to? Frontline staff knows and understands the pain points of the customers, some are just so bogged down with workarounds to do anything about them.
