    I have been working at South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits! Including many paid holidays, a great deal of annual leave and sick leave. Great place to earn some experience in the Environmental Field.

    Cons

    The pay is really the only pay. No room for advancement unless someone leaves or retires. Many positions that do become available are typically for a chosen candidate.

    I have been working at South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control

    Pros

    You have a lot of holidays. You accumulate vacation days and sick days. It's never a problem taking off for family or personal matters.

    Cons

    There are very few positions that would not be considered a dead-end job. There are no pay increases. Everyone gets the same rating no matter if the employee works his tale off or if he hides in his office all day.
