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

    Pros

    The people are very nice, the salary is okay, and the retirement benefits are great.

    Cons

    The agency refuses to change with the times, and offer flexible schedules to its employees. Probation is one year, you earn vacation time, but can’t take it until after you’ve worked an entire year.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt flexible work schedules for your employees. And ditch the system the agency is using. It’s inefficient
