Prosecuting criminal cases is rewarding but good management, rewards, respect,and appreciation are non-existant
Assistant District Attorney General (Former Employee) – Murfreesboro, TN – July 8, 2018
The job I did when working for the State was fulfilling for many years, however, there is often little or no oversight, there are no rules, the working environment is often hostile and little or no appreciation is shown for a job well done. There is no reward systems and almost no constructive guidance. It is a very unhealthy environment. There is little or no team work and workers frequently engage in gossip and back bitting.
The ability to help victims of society is very rewarding.
The lack of respect and poor team work create a very stressful work environment.
A typical day of work is face pace depending on the time of the month when report are due. I learned at a very young age to work hard and act professional and you will be rewarded. A manager at the State of Tennessee wears many hats.
Medical Records Tech (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 21, 2018
Great benefits but the salary is not competitive and not up to industry standards. The people who research salaries need to consider the rising cost of living. The cost to live in a major city like Nashville is increasing daily, yet we do not receive any increases to accommodate this. The only people in State government that make any money are the people in top positions that make decisions that affect the people who do the work.
It would be an ok place to work if not for management playing favorites, and constantly undervaluing staff. If not related to managers, going to have a hard time getting any sort of promotion or advancement
Information Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 7, 2018
It was enjoyable coming to work, I had time in the morning to setup my daily tasks for the day. I learned to multi-task my job duties and we meet with management once a week to go over any projects that we were working on. I was macro managed which gave me more time to organize my workflow. The hardest part of my job was keeping up with the new technology changes on a monthly basis. I really enjoyed management giving me the opportunity to work at my own pace during my daily tasks, even our special projects were completed in a timely manner with keeping management updated.
The job was phenomenal. I really enjoyed & appreciate the opportunity.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – June 6, 2018
I really appreciate & enjoyed the opportunity to work for The State of Tennessee. The city court cleks office was a very interesting job. There were a lot of perks working in the data entry department. Then I really loved working in customer service to help people with what ever they may have needed at the time.
As a contractor it was a great place to work. I came in as Project Coordinator and quickly my PM realized that my work ethics were unbelievable to where she allowed me to work on my own, host my own meetings, and contact the business as well as the vendor without her consent. I also learned the business analyst side of this project as well.
Secretary (Former Employee) – Manchester, TN – June 4, 2018
Helping all customers, answering all incoming phone lines. Very busy days time went by quickly. Always tried to make sure everyone was taken care of. Best part of job was always having great staff to work with!
Investigator (Former Employee) – Tennessee – May 28, 2018
There is no work/life balance. The work can be extremely stressful. Some of the supervisors are incompetent and can get you into some big trouble because of it. The expectations are sometimes unrealistic. There are not enough people for what they expect you to do or maintain.
The benefits are wonderful. Everyone works together to help one another out (when possible).
Benefits, Coworkers, Pto, Sick Leave, Flexible
Stressful, no work life balance, unrealistic expectations
The state of Tennessee is a great company to work for but your voice as a employee is not well represented in the company and the company doesn't let you take care of your personal life over your professional
