    I have been working at Texas Workforce Commission full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent experience; easy to take time off; many paid holidays; set work schedule and no overtime; nice, large cubicle; excellent benefits and pension.

    Cons

    They keep throwing more work at you but give no raises; extremely difficult to get all the work done timely because they doubled the Audit quota; no upward mobility; few job openings; those who have been there for over 20 years were around when they freely gave raises and they're making more than anyone coming in now will ever make, and they stay until they retire [oftentimes that person comes back after the 90 day wait period]; the only way to move up is to move to Austin; almost all old people.

    Advice to Management

    Get a backbone and tell the Brass in Austin that your people need money to live and you need to offer competitive salaries. Support your Auditors and don't let Employers abuse them. Stop the internal pettiness.
