    I worked at State of Ohio Auditor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are very smart, benefits are good. Leave balances can accumulate rather quickly. No weekends or holidays.

    Cons

    Restrictive in every sense of the word. Anything you want to do outside the office must be approved. Although the people you work with are very smart, very few of them possess any real people skills. The training is abysmal at best. One year probationary period which few make it through. Becomes a toxic atmosphere quite quickly. You are told to ask questions then turns your inquiries around to terminate while in probation. You either need to start with some experience or you are set up to fail.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a training program that is more than just Power Points in a pdf format. Train your managers to put their people first and recognize signs of trouble. Be proactive in development. Senior management needs to do a better job of balancing the workload.

    I have been working at State of Ohio Auditor full-time

    Pros

    Time off is pretty flexible.

    Cons

    Stress!. The budgets are terrible. All I can think about non stop is how I am going to meet the budget. The training you receive is not very good, then you're thrown straight into the fire. The year long probationary period is brutal. You are not permitted to use the vacation time you have earned. Nor do you get your vision or dental insurance. The overall morale is very bad. Nobody seems to enjoy the job.

    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.
