Pros: employees, management
Cons: lazy employees
I worked for the AG's Office for many years and just loved it. I think the State is a wonderful employer, my only objection is MANAGEMENT IS TOO LAX on the lazy employees, which gives all the rest a bad name. How many times did I hear, "Oh, the State, where the lazy ones work - "they" spend all day doing anything BUT their job." This simply is not true...sure there are some that are like that, but for the most part the State IS AN EXCELLENT EMPLOYER AND STATE EMPLOYEES ARE THE BEST! Those of you that complain, GET OUT, make room for another. I always had a good deal of work to do and if I found myself pushed against the wall, I ALWAYS could find other employee(s) to help. Of course, there may be personality conflicts, but isn't that the way it is every where? Get Serious, THIS IS A GREAT EMPLOYER WITH GREAT EMPLOYEES. I learned a great deal about State government, and I came to the State with years behind me, but I always was ready to learn move. If I had an offer from a private firm vs. an offer from the State, I would, almost across the board, choose the State - every time.
