    I have been working at State of Connecticut full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are the best feature for working for the state. After 15 years of service I finally have the best supervisor in the world. If you don't like one department you can easily transfer to another to gain more experience.

    Cons

    You have to be really, really terrible at your job to be fired due to union pressure. And if you do something especially stupid then they promote you!

    Advice to Management

    Always be firm, fair and consistent when dealing with employees, write everything down and file it where only you can find it.
