Employment Counselor (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UtahMay 31, 2013
Working for the State is a great thing, especially if you like a relatively stable work environment if you can pass probation without getting your program funding cut and then can excel while program and department management structure changes every few years.

The state struture is all about reacting to funding and trends, which breeds discontent and mediocre effort. Ever get frustrated with State Workers? Probably, because after a while of putting in all your effort with no reward for the success you have, you kind of stop caring.

Pros
Great benefits, high starting wage
Cons
You will never get a raise. No one values state employees.

Great place to work - depending on division one is working in. There are ups and downs about the job just like any other job. Work/Life balance is amazing.
