    Pros

    Very smart people. They encourage new ideas and give opportunities to create real, statewide change. 20 Vacation days, 5 personal, 13 sick and 12 holidays per year. 37.5 hour workweek. Guaranteed benefit pension.

    Cons

    Salaries grow slow. Changes occur slow. Though there are many ambitious and smart/ talented people. You also have your career "state" employees present and it is possible to have your ambition slowly drain. Promotions depend not strictly on performance, but also budget and bureaucratic issues.

    Management is great, The cons are just the nature of the beast.
