    I worked at State of New Mexico (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    PTO and retirement are great as well as the insurance cost is very low! Great people to work with and supportive upper management

    Cons

    You can't get a raise unless you leave your position for something else which is horrible for people that love their current job!

    Advice to Management

    Make time to staff cases instead of just supervisor meetings and conference calls.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at State of New Mexico (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending upon qulaifications, title and agency can provide competitive salary
    No calls after 5 pm...straight 8 unless you are doing legislative work
    Standard annual and sick leave accumulation

    Cons

    Where do I start...I was hired as an Actuary at a private sector competitive salary and worked for 9 months in Santa Fe across from the Roundhouse. It all started out ok until about the third or fourth week. This is typical government employment. Everyone thinks that they are so privileged because you get some kind of job security after one year, for the department that I was assigned it was basically a bunch of overly competitive people in an entirely uncompetitive environment. People are generally PC to the point that it becomes rude, and most believe that they run the entire state, if not the entire world because, they work near the governor. The state government teeters on bankruptcy every quarter and almost always running at a revenue deficit or near broke...so corruption and the attitudes that come with, are pervasive. The organization that I was with tries to keep a rank and file...but it is loose and no one pays attention to it (remember they are trying to rule the world and not work for the citizens of New Mexico). The atmosphere in is a general word..."miserable." I accepted this position with commitment of reorienting myself to serving the citizens of New Mexico to the best of my ability within parameters of this position. What I got in return from this organization was general harassment, jealous attitudes (because of my degrees most notably), a bunch of old people acting like they gave me (or could give) the world...or prison, general stonewalling, lying, backpedaling, "alliance forming, "rumoring and backstabbing to end other peoples' careers but, other than that it was FUN :)

    Advice to Management

    None, management doesn't take adice

    I have been working at State of New Mexico full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No body calls you after 5 pm, good work life balance, predictable workload, pretty good pension and benefits and most holidays off.

    Cons

    As to be expected with government, change comes painfully slow, folks are generally afraid of change and generally you are understaffed and underfunded to complete your mandates.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart competent people, trust them to do their work, give them the resources they need and measure their performance on realized results.
