    I have been working at State of Florida full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, paid time off is adequate after 10 years of service. Health insurance is good while working, but changes.

    Cons

    After 30 yrs of service, the health insurance cost is full premium ($700/month). Since the Governor changed the retirement plan and now has 3% taken out of salary to pay towards pension, the salaries decreased and so did the pensions. Also, before Governor Scott, there were "cost of living increases" (increase in salary) from time to time. I've never received a raise until 2016 (17 years working). After 30 years of service, my pension will be $2000 a month, but the health insurance will cost $700 a month. If I would have known this would have changed when I had worked for 12 years, I would never have committed to this career in my 20s.

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid leave

    Cons

    My employer just gave all nurse there except me a months pay for a raise. I was told I didn’t get a raise because I have worked there the longest (22+ years)and make more than the others. So much for rewarding long term employees.
