    I worked at State of Minnesota full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The retirement and benefit options available. Pay rate very good. Seasonal positions get your foot in the door. The majority of employees do a very good job and should be better recognized.

    Cons

    Usual office politics, some "good ol' boy" network still exists. Unrealistic metrics. Some supervisors could use better people skills. Sometimes stress level can be very high depending on position, co-workers or supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Metrics system does not take into account certain factors that exist in the inability to reach target. What's important...quality or quantity? Clearer expectations in ones job as well as better OJT.
