Personnel Are Viewed As Liabilities - Not Assets

Compliance Officer - Health-Safety (Current Employee)

I have been working at State of Arizona full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSome positions pay a livable wage - - most do not and are 25-40% less than private sector position.

ConsNo promotional system.
Favored few get pay raises while higher quality staff are discouraged to excel.
Training only provided if federal government pays for it.
Academic studies and hard data analysis are irrelevant. Only majority partisan views are valid - - forget the facts.
 Management does not like personnel that are smarter than them.

Advice to Senior ManagementView and reward personnel as assets.
