    I have been working at Lagos State Government full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly Environment, you meet different kinds of people both in the private and public sector. It would make you stronger.

    Cons

    Job is monotonous, no challenge that's why people see public servants as jobless lots. More can be done in that sector if there's an enabling environment.

    Advice to Management

    Engage staff in brain tasking jobs.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Lagos State Government (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work has its own rewards, because you are serving the public
    More time to engage in other pursuits and self development cause the man hours are not as long and tasking as they would be in the private sector

    Cons

    The remuneration is very poor and does not meet industry standards. We usually have to deal with outdated administrative procedures for instance there is no intranet everything is still done in hard copy. It is also highly politicized office environment as rewards are not given on merit but to who has the best connections.

    Advice to Management

    Create a staff reward system on merit, improve on the technology, increasing the staff salaries. Invest in staff training and development.
