    I have been working at Tennessee Department of Environment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are really good. The pay is alright, but i'm living in Nashville and it's not enough.

    Cons

    At least for my office there is a lot of dysfunctional employee/manager relationships. Sometimes there isn't a lot of support for ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees and not so much on yourselves.

    I have been working at Tennessee Department of Environment full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the in-crowd, you will have opportunities that are no available to skilled and knowledgeable employees who are not chummy with executive leadership.

    Cons

    This is a clique-laden environment where pettiness, unprofessionalism and gossip reign supreme. Avoid at all costs as opportunities for advancement are limited to a select few of underskilled red-headed women.

    Pros

    The sequrity for a stable career with one employer. The benefits are good; in particular insurance. The flexibility and leave are plus with many holidays.

    Cons

    Limited career advancement due nature of government. Greatest opportunities with latteral moves toward the capital. Better opportunities in Nashville. More limited opportunities further away from the capital.

    Advice to Management

    A little praise and appreciation can go a long way toward job satisfaction. Government can be an enviroment with limited opportunities and money for advancement. Therefore, more worker satisfaction and productvity can be increased by more inclusion in the decision process. Let people know their efforts are important and appreciated.
