    I worked at State of Connecticut full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, learn on the go, learn vital skills not taught in school, family environment, each office is small enough to allow you to get to know your co-workers and supervisors but each agency and office interacts with others within the state so you get to know many other people working other roles. State of Connecticut employees are compensated better than any other state. Health Insurance is great!

    Cons

    Not as stable as it used to be due to hiring freezes. Moving up is highly regulated and has become difficult even if you are well liked because you must apply for promotions from centralized agency.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunities for formalized learning and cross-training for other positions would help.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of Connecticut (Wethersfield, CT).

    Interview

    For well paid State employees they are the most miserable bunch of hiring managers I ever run across. Six of them in the room and I never felt so uncomfortable and the tension in the room....whoooa I could have cut it with a knife. On one side of the table there was one "tough guy" that thought he was God's gift to the world. lol Slouched down in his chair, his hand supporting the side of his head, his ego was ready to explode. He had this look on his face like I was wasting his precious time and for me to hurry up so he could go back to playing games on his computer. This just goes to show, they may get paid extremely well but the most unhappy people on the planet. I learned something out of that interview - money does not buy happiness. I am truly thankful that I was not selected for the position. I couldn't imagine working with any one of them. Oh I take that back, there was one nice woman that actually smiled at me.
