    The benefits package for working for the state or DHEC is good. You get very good health care and time off even thought you have to acquire month by month.

    The pay, and the 1% pay increase for cost of living
    Management sometimes doesn't tell you how you are doing, so it pays to ask on regular basis

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    You have a lot of holidays. You accumulate vacation days and sick days. It's never a problem taking off for family or personal matters.

    Cons

    There are very few positions that would not be considered a dead-end job. There are no pay increases. Everyone gets the same rating no matter if the employee works his tale off or if he hides in his office all day.

    Advice to Management

    Make staff more accountable. Do something to improve morale. Management by fear is not a good concept.
