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

    Pros

    Pay and time off are the only good parts to this job, aside from the fact that it is a good stepping stone to a better job.

    Cons

    Most of the time you sit around bored and unable to do anything to occupy your time except pretending to be busy. When you do have actual work to do it is piled on and you have high pressure to complete it. Management doesn't care about its workers, although there is constant preaching to the contrary. Rules are selective - meaning that they apply to people in some areas and regions, but not all: favoritism and old-school mentality win out. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    If you make a rule, enforce it to ALL employees, not all employees except for a select few. Practice what you preach. There is a Suggestion Box link on the company Intranet that goes unchecked, unheard, and unpracticed. Also, allow employees the ability to occupy their time in productive ways when there is no work to do. There is more behind-the-back talk, secrecy, and plotting here than there is in a high-security prison.

    Pros

    You can flex your 40 hours each week. Management (Audit Managers / Senior Audit Managers) provide constructive feedback on all of your work.

    Cons

    Some of the work gets very repetitive after a few months. Clients take a long time to get information back to you and sometimes you need to scramble for hours to bill.

    Advice to Management

    Create lager budgets. Too often, we are working on our own time, at the fault of the clients and their management.

    Pros

    Liked my co-workers and actually really enjoyed the work that I did with Local Government Services. Loved the flexibility we were given when it came to scheduling

    Cons

    The benefits are great because they're state benefits, but they definitely do not pay as well as other state agencies. The traveling got really old after a while too.

    Pros

    State retirement plan. Mostly good coworkers. Moving from audit to audit and change of audit team keeps things more fresh than always working with the exact same people.

    Cons

    Time budgets - they are set up with not enough time. Even a small issue can cause not meeting the time budget.

    I worked at State of Ohio Auditor full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Work is not stressful depending on who your manager is. Decent pay for right out of college and pretty good benefits. Can work from home after making it past probation.

    Cons

    Set pay structure that rewards longevity over performance. Typical government job in that sense. Little reward for staying a long time. After working for a couple years, salary is not as competitive with private companies.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You get good benefits for low pay, no succession, and only have suffer 40 hours per week.

    You get to do a lot of work experience and get hands on experience even do the work of your managers while they read books, play video games, backstab, and socialize in their offices with their croonies.

    You learn what kind of manager you dont want to be...such as making a pass at subordinate at training and then after they are rejected, treat them like crap in devious ways so the person looks bad.

    Cons

    Textbook definition of bad management and low morale attributes.

    While you do managers work, you dont get credit for it because well, why should they? The evaluation process is broken and managers are so lazy that they just change the evaluation to your name even if the content labels you as a different gender, part time, and wrong project. Or, they are too lazy and don't bother to fill one out. Or, they don't bother filling out what you did right but the one thing you got wrong that they waited until the evaluation to tell you. Or, you asked too many questions about the project and instead of valuing that you want to understand the job, you were too much of a bother for managers to manage. God forbid they communicate.

    Want to get labeled as a poor employee or get passed over and ignored for your achievements, bring up management issues. Management doesn't like it when you recognize fault in the system. They are there to bide their time until they retire, in ten years. Don't mess it up for them.

    Advice to Management

    Hit the reset button on managers. Do 360 evaluations and really look at the problem which is generally not staff. You have lazy and ill-placed complacent managers that do not have management and leadership competencies. You do a diservice to good people. They quit and don't tell you the real reason because they know you don't care and it will not change.

    Pros

    Great hours, great benefits with low costs, earn plenty of leave and can take off anytime you want, job allows for plenty of time to pursue outside of work interests, overall good coworkers, good job to get your experience after graduating

    Cons

    Low pay relative to other state agencies and other employers, excessive turnover, low morale and negative moods among most employees, ridiculously low amounts of time to complete tasks, boring work once you figure it out, bad management, certain managers are excessively picky and condescending to their subordinates, does not listen to employee suggestions, not challenging if you are bright and high achieving.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to keep people instead of just complain about people quitting and bad employees staying, increase overall pay and tie pay increases to performance, actually listen to what assistant auditors and audit managers have to say because we know more about what we do than you do, stand up to audit clients by imposing sanctions against ones who do not want to cooperate with the process instead of just telling assistant auditors and audit managers to continue to call and email and not get anywhere
