      Conflicting Instructions

      Pros

      If you work for the State a few years then the pay is decent. PERS will eat you alive, but you get used to it after a while.. and when you quit, that can mean $50K+ (less darn taxes). Every three months they're hiring 40-50 people at a time.

      Cons

      Training included 10 weeks of mostly power points. (Not helpful if you're struggling to stay awake). Try to stay close to the instructor if you're an introvert, because extroverts will interrupt, speak over the instructor and complain. You don't learn anything when you're trying to block them out. And you're really not trained for the real work. Clique-y! Managers don't know anything because when you ask for direction, they ask if you read the manual. Of course you did, but because you're not clear on the interpretation, you ask questions. They'll make you feel stupid and talk to co-workers about it. Extroverts are good at arguing back until they win, but if you're an introvert you'd rather bypass all that drama and get the information to finish the task.

      Pros

      Chance to advance in different jobs and higher grades

      Cons

      It's all politics. Promotions are by who you know, what dirt you have on someone, or you're just the last one standing. Your wages and benefits depend on what the legislature decides every 2 years.
