    I have been working at State of North Carolina full-time

    Pros

    From Division leaders all the way to IT support, whenever an issue arises there is someone quick to respond with a solution. Benefits are more than reasonable.

    Cons

    Employee salaries are more competitive in the private sector but regular increases certainly help to incentivize retention of good employees.

    Advice to Management

    With such a large pool of employees, it is difficult to make an individual feel important. Regular reviews, feedback and recognition would go a long way towards job satisfaction.
