Best work life balance in North America. Benefits you can't beat.
Organization is not as agile as a private sector company/organization. Opportunities for career advancement are limited due to low turnover but you can find them if you engage with a decent amount of energy.
Advice to Management
Just listen to your employee's. Allostasis is the new homeostasis.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at State of Michigan in June 2017.
Standard behavior base questions and a typing test. Passed both of those.. I was informed that they were going to complete a background check and reference check.. its going on a month and haven't heard anything back. I will wait a few more weeks to see where I stand.. will update later.
