I have been working at State of Alaska full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

As a Veterans Representative I work daily with American heroes. These heroes are fully functional and have tremendous transferrable skills that employers need to recognize and make a place for them in the workplace. The employers need to pursue the Apprenticeship approach to train an individual who would fit into their culture but lacks some certification or entry level degree.

Cons

Accounting to the "bean counters" that much of my job is intangible and cannot be measured in individual tasks and specific results that pertain only to Alaska.

Advice to Management

Allow a professional career employee latitude to work out of the box and be creative.

    I have been working at State of Alaska full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of the individuals are nice people. 7.5 hour days are great during the summer months. The medical benefits are also very nice!

    Cons

    Unorganized. Lack of department wide alignment with the organization strategy. Individuals have their own agendas resulting in everyone running different paths. Its very hard to accomplish anything within this atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Align your organization.
