I found the State of Vermont as an employer overall to be a nice fit. There is opportunity to learn new things, work in different fields, and be able to change your job along the way, if you choose too.

Was hired on to be trained to do something no one was trained for and given a very short leash to grasp and learn position. In a regular office setting this could have been accomplished not during a pandemic work from home environment that was and is not set up for work from home. Manager's expectations unrealistic given the circumstance but expected results. Training was not great, people that trained me not great. Not a great situation for me didn't work out.
Pros
Pay, Insurance good for me.
Cons
Training, trainers not good or patient expectations unrealistic.

I worked there for 12 seasons and had few opportunities to move up. They hired from outside, which seems a common theme.
The people I worked with are very passionate about our work preserving the State owned land. Some employees did not think skill level for my position was warranted.

All in all, this was the best jb in Vermont for me, except for the commute and lack of promotion.
Pros
work out doors
Cons
No promotion

I love what the dmh standards of helping vulnerable adults are supposed to be but the state falls short of keeping employees happy and taking care of the motto should be better treated and compensated staff makes for better health care of residents I wish our state government saw it that way morale is always low and we have to set the bar higher for the people we serve.

Culture is terrible, good work isn't really rewarded. Either give up and muddle through to retirement or move on. Those are the only options available.

A typical day at work was so enjoyable and great atmosphere.

There are some great employees for new graduates to learn from. Politics (both internal and external to the organization) can be challenging. Many opportunities for growth if you manage your own career actively.

Compensation is competitive within the non-profit organizations. An individual most be motivated to seek opportunities and to express ideas. Work loads vary greatly within classification and between departments/agencies.
Pros
Training is encouraged.
Cons
Interview process can be tedious

Great work/life balance and you will never be doing the same type of work day in and day out, which I enjoy.
You will be busy, and at other times able to assist other office personnel to become more well rounded.

On the gravy train if you are a performenr

Poor Management

The work is reasonable but the Directors and above are clueless, none have actually done the work they supervise. Seem to read an article on a new trend in management and take off with it.

The staff with which I worked were professional, warm and dedicated! Everyone worked as a team, supported each other and provided an upbeat, positive wok environment.
Management is aware of struggles, supportive and always willing to dive in and help where possible. I'll miss working for the State of Vermont and the Office of the Treasurer!
Pros
Team work, warm
Cons
Office tended to be hot...
