    Negative Outlook

    I worked at State of Minnesota full-time

    Pros

    The State of Minnesota's benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Revolving door. Management-led culture and values don't encourage seasoned state HR staff to work there and it's very difficult for new employees to master the steep learning curve to be effective, particularly given the shortage of experienced staff to mentor them.

    Advice to Management

    Be more tolerant of individual differences and listen to the employee and customer concerns voiced in recent focus groups and surveys. Lead by positive example to build MMB's statewide credibility as an employer of choice. Walk your talk.

    The pay is great, supervisors are good to work for. The work is easy, a lot of heavy lifting. Hours are good if you like working the night shift.

    To many Employee's abuse there sick leave and the fmla. The union backs those type of people up and does nothing to change them, nor does the upper management do any thing to stop the abuse of the sick leave.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell all the employee your going stop the abuse on the sick leave and the fmla, and then allow it to keep happening.
