    Pros

    Good health, variety of options, good balance of sick and vacation leave, sick rolls over and so does vacation to a point.

    No real performance bonus opportunity. Limited raises. Increased duties and regulations in how organizations are being operated is stressing workers out and burning them out.

    Advice to Management

    Examine how private companies are operating pay scale, time off, raises, other benefits to recruit new employees, retain older ones, and in particular, attract Millennials.

    I worked at State of Nebraska full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job security...if you don't go bonkers working there from dealing with bizarre, petty decisions.

    Cons

    if you're not a supervisor, you're never listened to. Ivory Tower syndrome. Supervisors generally don't know what their employees do. No communication. Constant budget problems. no commitment to IT security. (again because of budget problems) Supervisors don't do anything except attend meetings and berate employees over trivial nonsense. Even project management has been outsourced and not performed by supervisors/managers. Loyalty/sycophantry is valued over competence. criticism in any form and no matter how constructive is not tolerated. They will retaliate against you if they are criticized.

    Advice to Management

    Workers tend to know more than supervisors, perhaps you should listen to them. Everyone I know that works there knows that management does not care about efficiency, just cutting the budget. Lean Six Sigma total waste of time and money and it has not improved a single thing that we couldn't have done without LSS Place is just waiting to get hacked. Morale at an all time low. Used to be a great job, but everything has gone into a death spiral.
