    I have been working at State of Oregon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The state allows for a good work-life balance and the benefits and salary are average. The ability to telecommute is really nice as it cuts down on traffic time.

    Cons

    Outdated computer systems run all state services and data-bases. Administration values there own over the experts in a subject. Apparently, a manager is harder to replace than 10 plus years of in-depth subject knowledge. The managers the state hires a dime a dozen. There are some great managers.

    Advice to Management

    When applicable, the administration should listen to the employees as they are the ones that interact with the public and general work content on a daily basis. Don't assume lower level managers understands anything of the group that they manage. Unfortunately, this is commonly a mistake.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at State of Oregon (Salem, OR).

    Interview

    Multiple questions asked with sub-questions. Given plenty of time to answer each question. The interview is done with a panel of about 5 to 6 employees. On second interview, its a different panel of people with similar questions to the first interview. Both interviews are about an hour long.
