    I have been working at Texas Lottery full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard working and caring colleagues. A great work environment. Everyone tries to be a Team player. Bad attitudes not encouraged.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of. Sometimes the public makes inane comments about our work and dedication. But those who work there know otherwise.


  2. "Typical State Agency, with better location than others"

    Pros

    State benefits and, in certain divisions, the opportunity to move around some laterally.

    Cons

    Some divisions are run like mini orgs, where the manager appears to have complete control over activity, but allows no growth of employees. Innovation is treated like an affront rather than a means to improve, and emphasis is put on blind repetition of duties rather than improvement of results.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let your small, special division function like a silo. Give those people some clear means to communicate beyond their direct manager. There are some pretty thoughtful ideas being suffocated over there.

    "Senior Lottery Sales Manager"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Keeping my job Alive over a 9 year tenure from consistency in creating uniquely diverse marketing tactics targeted to raise and maintain quotas, especially through distressed periods.

    Cons

    Going to the office too frequently, surprised meetings, etc…, when suddenly taken off route.

    An OUTSIDE Sales Position means WORKING OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE AND CALLING ON CLIENTS, INCLUDING CUSTOMER EXPANSION.
                                                      If INSIDE an OFFICE SETTING, there will be NO PRODUCTIVITY.

    Advice to Management

    Promote praise for deeds well done, and at this time point out what was performed not so well. (i.e.); Train with ending on a positive to create self-security, encouragement, and optimism.
