    I worked at Arizona Department of Revenue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Department of Revenue is the most risk adverse of all state agency in Arizona. If you are someone that checks the food safety website, surveys the group, and calls the restaurant to confirm the daily special, and than resurveys the group before going to lunch by yourself this is the agency for you.

    Cons

    You will receive no pay raises or opportunity to advance. Middle-management applies the 3"D"s of management. If you ask for something to be improved you will be asked to 1.) defer your request to opportune time; 2.) discourage the requester, and 3.) deny the request.

    Advice to Management

    To quote Dark Helmet from Spaceballs, "Quit preparing and just go!"

    Pros

    Normal business hours, great work/life balance. Great health insurance and paid time off.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Annual increases are non-existent here. Increases need to be approved for all employees by legislature and rarely occur. Top performance is not rewarded.

    Allow for more promotions across departments and find a way to allow for annual salary increases.

    Great new management, and co-workers most of them were good people, learned a great deal, and good pay.

    There was I would say two specific individuals who was one of the managers and a Trainers whom I would not trust, very high school attitude, jealousy, and just played a role of mean girls.

    I worked at Arizona Department of Revenue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My overall experience at the Arizona Department of Revenue was very positive. However, a major change in executive leadership in the Fall of 2015 resulted in serious changes at the department that destroyed employee moral and resulted in terminations and lay-offs. I was one who was laid-off without any warning or severance benefits. I would no longer recommend to anyone that they seek employment there as it is no longer a positive environment to work in.

    Cons

    Executive leadership does not care one whit about employees.

    Advice to Management

    I cannot write that in this forum.
