    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Florida Department of Revenue full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have great co-workers and a lot of flexibility when needed. Some job tracks include the opportunity to telework, which is a bonus both in terms of savings--money, gas, wear and tear on my vehicle--and in terms of feeling like I'm treated as a responsible adult instead of micromanaged 24/7 like I have in other fields.

    Cons

    Some other fields are very prone to micromanagement and unrealistic metrics, sometimes even completely impossible-to-meet requirements (think having one actual task to work for a period when you are required to complete ten). In addition, pay is low--the best workers may be tempted to move to more lucrative private-sector jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for advancement.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Florida Department of Revenue full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Easy no hassle place to work. Benefits are good and on par with private industry.

      Cons

      Starting pay is less than 50% of what I was offered when my IRS appointment came through. No raises either. Of course most Florida State employees only have HS diplomas. even the MANAGERS! No advancement. Managers have a terrible practice of hiring friends from other State programs into new positions at their current salary. This type of cronyism leads to inexperienced workers earning twice what existing workers...

      Advice to Management

      Stop letting the Manager's buddies abuse flex time! They come in and "work" before the office is is open, and then flex out at the busiest time of day! The rest of us have to pick up their slack (or not because we got sick of it)

        Advice to Management

        Operate with integrity across the board. Create a better method of evaluating employees. Tell the truth regarding salary increases, promotions, etc. Develop a system where employees from outside of Florida can evaluate their offices. Conduct a salary evaluation... some folk are making more than they should, compared to others. Hold management responsible for how they treat their employees. Review and update position...

        Pros

        The job is easy to do , the people are friendly and work environment isn’t stressful at all it’s pretty laid back.
