    Pros

    Flexible schedule allowed me to continue school while working part time. Great benefits and plenty of paid time off.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Texas Department of Insurance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very little stress. However, many employees here believe there is stress in the workplace, but they haven't worked in the private sector and do not know the stress of when your job is on the line. Other pro is the benefits and additional weird days off on top of the standard holidays.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers. Politics are thick here -- very difficult to break the barrier if the 'influential' people are not on your side.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of current managers and replace with competent ones
