    I have been working at Arizona State Retirement System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good.
    Location is good for commuters.
    Most nonmanagers are nice and polite.
    Some areas have flexible work hours and remote work opportunities.

    Cons

    There are a lot of managers many of them are under qualified.
    Most of the senior managers focus on how to cover themselves and not what is best for the agency or it's members.
    There are a lot of politics and crossing the wrong person has extremely negative impacts regardless of what happened.
    Some divisions get special treatment.
    Pay is low and it is very rare to get a raise.
    A lot of business processes are wing-it and undocumented.

    Advice to Management

    Change needs to start from the top down.

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    The employees in my division were pleasant, very knowledgeable and fun to work with.

    Cons

    My supervisor at the initial level was professional and fun to work for, but every level above that management was less than adequate and had a hard time listening.
    The Agency is very "stratified" and managers seems to embrace their titles. Basically too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Advice to Management

    Listen ,,, really listen

    kept the people working, because when you keep people working for or though the system and all over State of Az, you will see high out put of people buying, what they need in life, see if people does not have jobs, we all pay for it and if you look at it now, you can see it happening in front of you or your eyes, I believe in this this is what made America, U.S. A. great because we as people did not for ourselves but for our childen and there too, so please this is what makes Az Stae Retirement system great, because you believe in the people of Az

    Pros

    The agency makes up for it's inability to pay high salaries with opportunities for professional development and focus on a positive, supportive work environment.

    Cons

    Because it's a government agency, there are some politics that affect business decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
