"Commonwealth of Pennsylvania" is a gigantic entity with more departments and bureaus you can shake a stick at, so trying to rate this "business" is virtually impossible- what one person "hates" another is going to love. Personally, I've worked at CWOPA for 25+ years and like it... I don't love the work so much but admire my supervisor and really, really like my coworkers, so I'm fortunate. Best advice I could give to anyone is if you dislike your supervisor or job, bid out somewhere else or quit. It's no different in that respect than working for private industry.
