    I worked at State of Michigan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    good pay, benefits. Rewarding experience to be of service the State. Technology in workplace is improving.

    Cons

    due to political nature, meaning actual Politics, ever changing workplace with no set goals. Salary is paid by Federal government, but you are treated as either a State or Federal employee depending on which is easier for Management to justify questionable, often dishonest, decisions. Management will not support you. Usual problems with Union jobs: no matter how hard you work or skilled you are you co-worker makes the same as you, Union is simply more politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency. Understand 'metrics' are more complicated in public sector- the level or rework constantly increases. Listen to lower Management who know the work since upper management are essentially 'appointed positions.' Show integrity.
