    I have been working at West Virginia Division of Corrections full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have a hard time thinking of anything besides its always going to be there.

    Cons

    The state workers need paid better with better insurance. It's not hardly worth getting up everyday to go yo work there when you know you can make most as much basically anywhere.
