    I have been working at Pennsylvania Department of Transportation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    State position with good benefits, pension, and work environment. 7.5 hour days. Optional overtime. Laid back work environment. Good pay for non-technical jobs.

    Cons

    A lot of red tape on the business side. Spend a lot of time waiting for approvals. Lower than market pay for higher skilled jobs. Limited career opportunities depending on your field. Equipment and software are often very out of date.

    Advice to Management

    Too much red tape.
