    I worked at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    union position, manageable workload, great office location, treated like a "person" (manager recognizes typical life problems such as sickness and family issues)

    Cons

    disorganized, disjointed goals, lack of/poor communication, quick fix decision making, lack of resources available, hire based on "who you know" and not actual qualifications

    Advice to Management

    Years of experience in state government does not equal quality. Compensate employees for their hard work and in order to keep them.
