    I have been working at State of Indiana full-time

    Pros

    I worked for six agencies in 14 years - so many opportunities for advancement, either within agencies or by switching agencies. Benefits transfer between agencies, so no loss of accrued time or insurance. Some agencies offer great perks, such as telework or alternate works schedules. The judicial branch generally offers higher pay for the same positions as the executive branch.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get in the door. Often, entry level positions pay next to nothing. Some agencies have very strict rules. I would not suggest working at the Department of Revenue to my worst enemy.


  6. "Opportunity to Serve"

    I have been working at State of Indiana full-time

    Pros

    Working for the state has allowed me the opportunity to use my skills, knowledge, and experience to serve the citizens of Indiana. The work that I've done has had an impact throughout the state and allowed and assisted many individuals in doing their jobs in the best way possible. I have worked along side many dedicated and hard working people who devote their expertise and time to do the same. It is hard work, but well worth it.

    Cons

    A "con" to working for the state government is the constant change. Each time a new administration takes office, priorities change, philosophies change, personnel (especially at the leadership level) changes, and goals, objectives, and procedures change. Sometimes these changes are to the benefit of the agency and the service they provide, but often they create more difficulties and discord, which creates a whole different set of issues.
