    I have been working at State of Utah full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, a good chance for promotions, an organization that really tries to do its best and is accountable to taxpayers' money.

    Cons

    You can feel like a sausage in the grinder because there is not a lot of variety in this job. But, you can definitely learn a ton at Dept of Workforce Services.

    Advice to Management

    I am struck by the amount of turnover for Specialists, especially given the large amount of time and money spent to train for a difficult job. Please try to hold onto people longer and work on improving staff morale.


  2. "Stable environment, that is has a good work-life balance."
