    The Gov has no appreciation

    Jul 29, 2015 - Grade 36 in Carson City, NV
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    You may have job security.


    No career path.- unless you're a male Low wages, lack of raises, furloughs, and when you do get a 3% increase, they reduce it by raising healthcare and benefit costs. I netted a . -1.5% decrease on my paycheck after the first raise in 5 years was offset by an increase in benefits costs. Outdated salary range that do not reflect the increase in the cost of living over the last 8 years. No education funds No training funds No mentoring (unless you're a male) No employee appreciation - in the form of an email from the Gov. Employees contribute to their own appreciation and throw themselves a party. The state wouldn't spend a nickel to show appreciation. Medicaid has better insurance then the state offers and new employees don't get any insurance or pension. No upper management HR training so no hope for change. A hierarchy that does not allow access to decision makers, information coming from Grade 2X or 3X becomes rumor after having to navigate the 'Supervisor/Manager' game.

    Great Work Environment and Benefits

    Nov 4, 2020 - Statistician II in Carson City, NV
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    Work environment was wonderful, and the benefits were great. Also, there were opportunities to work with other departments within the agency, and projects were interesting. Great work-life balance and many opportunities exist to apply to other positions.


    Pay is quite low compared to private sector jobs, and I saw quite a bit of my paycheck go to my retirement fund. The issue with pay is to be expected to some degree, but the local cost of living has increased substantially, while State pay has not.
