    Pros

    Generous amount of paid time off. Job security. Free Professional development workshops. Free tuition for full time employees.

    Cons

    Old ways of doing stuff. Folks in general tend to not help others; they do their job and their job only (Stereotypical state employee mindset). Low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt some of the values in today’s corporate culture to make a more effective up to date work environment: allow work from home options.... more leadership training for upper management to better learn how to properly manage teams.....
