I worked at State of Minnesota full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Each section is unique- its own company, culture and mission. This allows for more "personable-ness" and productivity than the common stereotype for a bureaucracy.

Opportunities to participate on highly recognized projects and programs and to establish precedent on pressing health concerns- both locally and nationally.

Great benefits: healthcare, pension, life insurance, deferred compensation, etc.

Cons

Hiring process can be very difficult to crack unless you are an effective networker with existing employees.

Upward mobility is almost non-existent for professionals with advanced degrees.

Salaries are 30-50% less than your corporate equivalent

Advice to Management

Motivate with the mission of being a public servant and -Incorporate a way to allow employees to operate at their full potential- whatever that may be.
