    Run far, far away.

    Pros

    If you are willing to move frequently and get your nose extremely brown you may be able to move up the ladder. If moving and brown nosing is not your thing you will be locked into your original position until you leave.

    Cons

    Well....after 22 years I take home just under $900 every two weeks after taxes, health care, and a modest contribution to my 401. The hourly wage continues to go up. At this point I make $25 an hour. But don't let that fool you. The state of michigan has raised health care co pays as well as discovering new ways to reduce our income while showing a generous hourly wage. I take home less now than I did 17 years ago.

    Not what government used to be

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, some really great co-workers, holidays off if the job qualifies, not much more to list.

    Cons

    Union protects lazy workers, no pension, little room for advancement (who you know, not quality of work), incredible workloads, high turnover, unrealistic expectations, ridiculous policies, unrealistic expectations of employee, you do not want to take time off because you just come back to more work, and the list goes on.
