      Employment with the state: It can be rewarding, but apathy and incompetence are a bit too commonplace

      Aug 20, 2013 - Laboratory Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Unique experiences which would be hard to obtain in other settings. Good benefits including pension. Company goals, values, and accomplishments are meaningful, and valuable to the community.

      Cons

      It can be very hit-or-miss with regards to management. Many areas have very reasonable managers/supervisors that work well and encourage and reward employees, other areas have terrible managers with terrible interpersonal skills and a complete lack of professionalism. In my experience, incompetent individuals have been promoted to management based merely on their incompetence at performing their duties, and it was easier to promote than to go through the process of building a case for termination. In general I would say that this is becoming less common, and HR is getting better at preventing such things, but incompetence is still all to common. Raises, bonuses, and incentives are essentially non-existent, which leads to general apathy.

      State encourages and promotes incompetance

      Aug 12, 2011 -  in Salt Lake City, UT
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits. Good time off possibilities. Set hours for the most part. Systems in place for employee reviews. Potential for growth within the state as you have first access to open jobs.

      Cons

      Incompetance is encouraged. Theres an atmosphere of lets do as little work as possible, come in late, be out sick, leave early without reporting it and those who do their job or complain when others dont (not me but another staff member) are gotten rid of. The only thing upper management wants is for their budget to be met regardless of if the job is done. No employee reviews done despite repeated requests. People promoted because of their ability to be manipulated by the director rather than because of their skills and abilities. A very negative environment in which to work...management gives trainings on not gossipping and such and during the training is in the bathroom talking about people.

      Adult Protective Investigator

      Nov 27, 2016 - Caseworker in Provo, UT
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Steady employment, typical 8 am to 5 pm day, paid holidays, good benefits, small department, and own office.

      Cons

      Utah is one of the lowering paying states for this position. Pay raises are only a few cents. Benefits have gone up in price and cancel out pay raise. Extremely difficult to raise a family on low salary.

      Good Not Great

      Mar 8, 2016 - Supervisor in Salt Lake City, UT
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits are good but gradually going in the opposite direction. UTA public transit paid for. Pensions no longer exist in the form they use to but still good for those who started prior 2011.

      Cons

      Only way to really make a decent wage is to get into management. Office politics are bad if not worse than the private sector. Government waste is prevalent.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The retirement benefits are good,the health benefits are good, paid vacation and sick leave are provided and with seniority they increase slightly.

      Cons

      Pay is a struggle for the first 5 years and then gets a little better. Innovation can be held back because of strict or bureaucratic rules.
