I have been working at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people to work with, always nice and friendly. Much free time to do other school work or surf the internet.

Cons

Often confusion on exactly what to do. The overall topics were not very interesting and at times very tedious and boring. Very isolated from any real work and interaction

Advice to Management

Have more structure for interns

    I have been working at Commonwealth of Massachusetts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a very secure paycheck; it has a very laidback envionrment; people are very willing to help you learn; you get exposure to many different things; if you are going to school, getting your CPA, or have a familty, it has a VERY good work/life balance; good benefits with ALOT of time off to use at your descretion

    Cons

    90% of the people you work with are laugh-out-loud stupid; the pay is really low, very very slow pace; administration and upper management often contradict themselvs and do not follow the policies they put into place; very nicheey job, once you are there, unless you proactively seek networking opporutnites or make a consistent effort with recruiters/skill diversity, you are there for good; hard work while recognized, is seldom rewarded $$; incompetent people are likely paid much more than you are becasue they "know" someone, regardless of their track record;

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you will do, as far as the policies that YOU put into place. You cannot expect competent, smart employees to stay if you treat them like a number and are arbiraily selective upon the people to which the "rules" apply. Treat everyone the same and use objective metrics to guage pay scales.
