    I worked at State of Utah full-time

    Pros

    The work-life balance is ideal (you leave work at work). Benefits have been slipping, but the state still offers decent retirement and health care benefits.

    Cons

    The department executive director along with all their appointees created a terrible work culture (e.g. nepotism, favoritism, hostile work environment, high turnover, low morale). For professional-level fields, the compensation is horrible and falls far below industry standards. Limited advancement opportunities unless you're white, male, and Mormon (few exceptions).
