    I have been working at Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services full-time

    Pros

    I've been working at FDACS for two years now, and have had to opportunity to move up quite a bit during this time. I really like that this agency tries to promote from within as much as they can. Atmosphere is great for a state agency.

    Cons

    Salary, common complaint for most government agencies but I know they have the salary dollars to pay more; they are just choosy about who they give it to. Some people who work hard and have a great work ethic are not rewarded, only given a kudos via email. Performance evaluations mean nothing when it comes to requesting a raise. It is really about who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees with a 3-5% increase who show continue to work hard and do whatever they can to help others. You might noticeably decrease the turnover if employees truly feel appreciated.
