    I have been working at State of Maryland full-time

    Pros

    Good for people who are looking for entry-level government administrative experience

    Cons

    The Department reminds me of a plantation. Poor compensation. If you're not best friends with the Chief, Director and/or Deputy Director , unless you're white, your chances of being exposed to all professional develop opportunities are slim to none. Institutional Racism at its finest.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide equal opportunity to everyone. Most importantly, minorities.

    I have been working at State of Maryland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Superior benefits dental, medical, vision than anything from the private sector
    -Generous leave package
    -Pension - superior than private sector 401k
    -Job security
    -Room for advancement
    -Employee Training

    Cons

    Lack of funding for overall agency, overwhelming amount of work, horribly low salary, little training and office politics. High turnover. Management expects the same amount of work to get done with half the people since everyone keeps leaving

    Advice to Management

    Do your job and manage your workers better. Leadership is totally lacking as a lot of the managers try to do the least amount of work possible just like too many of the employees.
