    Good stability (for some employees), absolutely horrendous compensation

    Dec 26, 2019 - Management Analyst 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Stable for employees that are not funded through federal grants. If you're funded through federal grants, 100% of the commonly held belief that there is job security with the state is FALSE.

    Cons

    The compensation is a joke. The equivalent rank with any other local government entity (counties, cities etc.) pays around 40% more. That gap is NEVER going to close, despite the recent legislation permitting collective bargaining, because there are no teeth to it to bring to the legislature. Compensating state employees properly will never be a politically popular decision, and that means it will NEVER happen.

    The Gov has no appreciation

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

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 Outdated salary range that do not reflect the increase in the cost of living over the last 8 years.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

    Poor outlook for state employees in Nevada

    Apr 19, 2011 - IT Worker in Carson City, NV
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    8-5 job with no weekends. Relatively good job security.

    Cons

    Employee morale is at an all time low. The legislature is more than willing to sacrifice state employees as a scapegoat in the budgeting process. Pay and benefits are getting worse and worse, with no hope of improving any time in the foreseeable future (if ever). Expect medical and retirment benefits to continue to get worse. Lots of middle managers, the majority of whom seems to be promoted from low level admin and techician positions with no real training or leadership qualifications. Incompetent HR. Bureaucratic. Lack of vision or focused goals. Poor quality control. Lots of outsourcing in IT.
