    I worked at Commonwealth of Virginia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good health insurance, the Virginia Retirement System, and paid state holidays.

    Severe micromanagement from the immediate supervisor and district manager. I quit very early into the job because of it.

    After 25-30 years, maybe it's time to retire. If not, receive training on how to properly manage staff.
