I worked at State of Arizona full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good health and dental benefits, good sick and vacation leave time accumulation.

Cons

Dealing with customers that think "they" pay your salary, like we as taxpayers don't contribute to our own salaries. Having to work for the latest political hack, or appointee who is given position of management, without qualifications necessary to perform job effectively. Having to deal with the hidden agendas of Legislators, who are only thinking of getting reelected, not the best outcome for the State.

Advice to Management

Remember, this is supposed to be representation of the "people", not just special interests groups that fatten your wallets and campaign coffers. Make managers more personally responsible for their actions, quit hiding behind the shield of government immunity.
