I have been working at State of Colorado full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Experience - good and bad - in state government is very dependent on the agency, leadership, and middle management.

Great opportunities for growth and networking, especially in health-related agencies

Cons

Depending in agency and position, challenges are: Bureaucracy, limited resources, limited mobility (depending on starting point).

Pros outweigh the cons!

    Pros

    Consistent hours, many opportunities to transfer within the State system/ Departments

    Cons

    Low pay, Horrible co-workers- mainly the uneducated masses of classified employees who have determined how to play the state system and remain employed just to get a pay check!
    Constant changes in Leadership! the constant struggle to stretch the budget due to the lack of public funds.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the pay and eliminate the masses of classified employees clogging the system!

    I worked at State of Colorado full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, reasonable schedule, decent benefits including retirement & long-term disability. Supportive of personal development in job-related areas; seminars, webinars, conferences, etc.

    Cons

    Budget is controlled by state legislature. Individuals can be petty tyrants, fostering a hostile work environment, blatantly "playing favorites"; & they just put in their time. Salary freezes for years are common depending on state revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Extend some trust to your supervisees.
