    I worked at Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a great group of people who work here! They work together to support each other and get the job done.

    Cons

    Management should do away with the three legged stool idea and stress cohesiveness, not division. Work on building one team.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same. Stop using the budget as an excuse.

    Pros

    Great people, great work-life balance

    Cons

    Compensation....if i were getting paid more I would not be looking for other jobs. There are career ladders for certain positions, some advance quickly and get decent pay increases, others-particularly the Administrative Assistant has 2 years between each raise of about $100 to your monthly salary. Those positions that are not part of a career ladder are subject to merits at the supervisor's discretion or when money is available. As we all know, there will not be any extra money in the government any time soon :(.

    Advice to Management

    I've had very positive interaction with the leadership.

    I loved working here. Everyone was so nice. I was given a lot of legal work. This was a great internship to hold before entering law school.

    Some days were less busy than others, which can be nice; however, I prefer to stay busy!

    So many holidays off. It was a stable check and a pretty easy job. They do a lot of parties

    Pros

    Lots of time spent without supervision to handle tasks given to you.
    I also had a lot of spare time and would ask for more opportunities to go out of my daily tasks.

    Cons

    Cubical mentality. The directors were always busy with their own things to not allow time to spend obtaining more tasks from them. No free anything!

    Advice to Management

    Share your tasks with others. Allow for more positions in the correct departments. Talk to employees to see what that department needs
