    Great job. Great hours. Great benefits.

    Pay could be a little bit better. Had to furlough because of budget crisis back then.

    Pros

    Benefits are standard with any government related work, so they are good bordering on great. Once you are vested (post first year) you are locked into your position for classified employees. Most categories/job titles are used throughout all divisions so skillsets and work performance standards can easily transfer between divisions/agencies.

    Cons

    Very fiscally focused and thus if the "state" has not been doing well then the agencies will suffer. This is coming from someone that has been through two different "furlough" events due to economic crisis. But the furloughs are the end of it, they will mess with benefits packages to compensate where applicable. Pay is close to 20% less than the private sector depending on the position, but the take home pay usually isn't what you are benefiting from while working for the state, this is about longevity and retirement (which has steadily gone down over the years).

    Pros

    Great pay scale (as long as 5-year long furloughs don't come back), good benefits, nice co-workers.

    Cons

    At the Belrose office we were once told not to talk outside of breaks, and you're here to be seen, not heard , during furloughs, we couldn't take our time off when needed, "I tell you when you can take off." Yikes!

    The Gov has no appreciation

    Pros

    You may have job security.

    Cons

    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 Outdated salary range that do not reflect the increase in the cost of living over the last 8 years.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.
