    I worked at State of Arizona full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with - very dedicated to their craft.
    IT leadership is very good.

    Cons

    You can work remote but you must reside within the state to get that priviledge. It would be better if the state would relax the remote working rules.

    The IT salary pay scales are greater for private companies than the state salaries scales. This prevents the state from acquiring better talent in key positions.

    Advice to Management

    Read my pros and cons items and promote policies that address them.
