    I worked at State of Hawaii full-time

    Pros

    Laid back. If you don't earn and burn, you will have more time off than you will know what to do with. Business casual. Enjoy one of the many snack tables that come with an office job. You can request to go to state training when they are being given. Job security. Flexible hours. If you train and learn and make friends in your department, they will help you move up when higher jobs become available.

    Cons

    Gov't job so pay is not as much as with a private company. Definitely not a living wage for Hawaii unless you live in a multi-earner household. Managers are a mixed bag; some are great and let you be independent but some are micro-managers that never leave you alone. Try to find a good one. You'll find that your coworkers are not always the most qualified.
    You are forced to join the union and pay your dues. The union does offer you many liberties but some take advantage of them when they don't really need it. It builds resentment among your coworkers and even just other state workers who hear about it because we are all still taxpayers and we don't like paying for someone's vacation while on "stress leave".

    Advice to Management

    Don't pick favorites in the office. Treat everyone equally.
