    Pros

    Secured employment. No worries of layoffs. Able to advance around the state to different agencies.

    Cons

    Pay not so good compared to private sector. Too much politics.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring, make sure you give the best possible rate of pay because as you know, raises are pretty much non-existent. No one likes to work at the same pay rate for 5+ years.
