    If you want job security and automatic raises then work for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

    Sep 17, 2008 - Budget Analyst in Boston, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The pay raises are based on time and not performance and most departments have a flex schedule. If you are just starting out the salaries are the same or better than comparable jobs in the private sector. The job security is excellent.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by, you must apply on your own. Raises are not given based on performance, which is a downside to the job if you are a well performing person. Most of the staff is "older," which can be bad if you are a younger employee.

    Your Just A Number

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overworked underpaid and being stabbed in the back you will love this job. They treat you like crap and will get passed over for promotions if you don’t kiss people’s buts.

    Cons

    Supervisors will stab you in the back. Bosses don’t care about you. You will be burnt out in the first year.
