I have been working at State of Nevada full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Stability is the biggest pro. The jobs aren't going away. Some of the benefits are good, 15 days of annual leave and 15 days of sick leave per year is nice. Middle management is better than upper management.

Cons

Pay is below market. Insurance is getting very expensive and covering less. Morale is low due to these factors. Upper management are political appointees, so the quality varies widely.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees. They are in the trenches and see what works. Promote more from within.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding bad behavior. Allow flexible schedules. Stop racism and judgmental treatment of clients
