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

    Pros

    State government jobs offer decent pay compared to most hourly jobs in Carson City. The retirement and health benefits are not what they used to be, but still better than a lot of places.

    Cons

    No easy career ladders to build on given how the hiring process works. Mentoring is hard to do when you supervise others because of this.

    Advice to Management

    None
