    I have been working at State of Montana full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits including health, vacation and sick leave. Great hours for someone looking to work 8 to 5 with little to no overtime. Good leadership and the department is working to stay current with technology.

    Cons

    If you are looking for travel this is not the place for you unless you are a manager or above. The upper management positions are mainly based out of Helena, so if you are looking to move up there is little room for advancement unless you are willing to move to Helena.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and the recent changes have been good for the company. The Department of Labor and Industry is moving in a great direction, just keep up with technology and all will be good.

    I worked at State of Montana full-time

    Pros

    Great supervisor who always took the time to listen to my concerns, working with at risk kids was meaningful to me, benefits were ok though not great, the state offered more PTO than many private companies

    Cons

    Upper management is terrible, people are stretched thin and expected to operate under a tremendous amount of stress with unbearably large caseloads

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support for employees

    Pros

    Great coworkers, direct supervisors were knowledgeable and supportive.

    Cons

    Stressful working conditions. Upper management do not take front line staff advice or input.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your front-line workers, treat them with respect. And hire more workers to process benefits rather than middle and upper management.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at State of Montana full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have a good immediate supervisor, she is fair and flexible. The benefits of working for State Government are good.

    Cons

    The culture of the workplace is not good. Upper management has created a hostile work environment by firing or forcing good people out of the agency and replacing them with people they owe favors to.

    Advice to Management

    Foster the kind of culture that was present 2 years ago. Get back to a culture of family and family values instead of the culture that makes everyone dread coming in to work and worry that everything you do will or could get you fired or pushed out. Drop the politics.
