    I have been working at State of Nebraska full-time

    Pros

    Most areas are very mission focused, filled with committed employees trying to serve needs of Nebraskans.

    Cons

    Budget issues requiring on-going hiring freeze means fewer and fewer people to complete the work. Aging employee base with many many areas average age well into 50s and even 60s,. Ten years from now, many of employees and most of managers will be retired resulting in significant loss of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Better identify what a key functions for agencies and eliminate other reports, duties and functions so reduced staff can focus on critical duties,.

    I know we are in the middle of budget cuts, so there's not a lot that can be done about raises, etc. Look for efficiencies and where you can cut non-essential jobs so that those remaining will have better opportunities
