    Pros

    Job Security after 1 year.

    Cons

    Lack of training, old software programs or unknown software programs that nobody uses. Pretty tough to improve your resume when you don't have access to current technology. They do not develop their existing employees, put out job notices that disqualify staff that are already doing the exact job they are hiring for. but cannot qualify for. I've never seen anything like it, they waste a tremendous amount of money turning over staff when they could save half that via training existing staff and the other half by retaining that staff through proper training opportunities. Zero career paths defined, HR is like stepping into 1980, might as well be doing it all manually since there isn't any feedback from management that shows they value their Human Resources....

    Toxic environment

    Mar 12, 2015 - Administrative Assistant IV in Las Vegas, NV
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of holidays off. Earning of vacation/sick time isn't bad. Knowing you've helped someone is a plus.

    Cons

    I've been in different industries for over 40 years, and this was by far the worst job environment I've even been in. I've been looking for another job since the day I walked in the door. Low pay. Lack of organized training efforts for new employees. Supervisors who do not lead. Ask a question of three people on how to do something and you'll get three different answers guaranteed. Had to provide a lot of my own supplies. Was there over a month before I got a spiral pad of paper. Broken down furnishings. Lots of waste going on via processes, procedures, and unnecessary things like background checks for all clients in NEON program, repetitive notations in multiple computer programs. Low pay for high expectations.

    Great Benefits - not so good for IT

    Jun 28, 2016 - IT Professional IV in Carson City, NV
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits - great retirement plan, adequate vacation and plenty of sick time. Social dynamics are fun and co-workers are caring.

    Cons

    Disorganized on multiple levels. Groups all IT type positions in the same pay group which does not work with the diversified types of IT skills that may be required for different positions. This creates many positions lacking adequate pay for the type of work.

    As long as your supervisor knows what they're doing, its ok.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits are great! Monday through Friday 8 to 5 with holidays and weekends off. The vacation time is earned while you work, so after the first year you could have 2 weeks vacation waiting for you. The pay is mediocre.

    Cons

    If you are a "trainee" and have a question concerning a case or need help figuring something out its hard to find a supervisor or lead who is available, or when you have a question regarding proper state guidelines and you ask your supervisor and their response is "I don't know...go ask someone else" doesn't give a person very much confidence not only in their job, but regarding the supervisor as well.

    It was a beneficial learning experience

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The benefits that are available to state employees is a great benefit in itself that goes with the Health Insurance offered, retirement plan, and 1 hour long lunches. Personal growth can be achieved after 1 year of probation is completed

    Cons

    -1 year of probation where you can be terminated for any reason which includes being late once, answering a question wrong, a supervisor does not like you. -Stressful job as you are on edge for being terminated -
