    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

    I worked at State of Nebraska full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers who believed in helping others.
    Good retirement and benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership is so filled with drama and promotes only the good old boys’ club. Pay for performance would divvy up 1% between the team so not motivating at all for someone making $10 an hour. If you worked there before the new administration you were labeled lazy and unwilling to change.

    Advice to Management

    We knew what process improvement was before you came to the State. You could have gotten a lot done if you would have talked less and listened more.
