Negative Outlook

I have been working at State of Utah full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Helping families change is rewarding. I have made some good friends in the office. We go and eat lunch together and try to support each other.

Cons

We haven't had a raise in 5 years and then we got a 1% raise. Don't feel real supported by management. They are not afraid to fire people.

Advice to Management

Be more supportive. Show workers they are doing well.

    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    No "call off" due to patient census; retirement plan; sick time accrual; holiday time; vacation time.

    Cons

    Increased costs of benefits; understaffed; 3-4 month hiring process, then another two months training before staff can actually work; unable to have a word in any decisions. Some administrators do not listen to suggestions from some employees, but will to their "favorites". An atmosphere of distrust among employees toward administration.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all of the employees, not just the few. Get rid of the nepotism.

    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    Stable with solid benefits. Work life balance isn't too bad either.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic to the max. Its funny, there are many in the organization that eschew inefficient government bureaucracies. They believe they are above it all and their work follows the private sector. These are typically the worst offenders.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make the perfect the enemy of the good just because you don't have to worry about the bottom line.
