Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make a company-sponsored ecopass (for public transport) permanently free for all employees, or else relocate to areas that allow for all employees to park for free. Some areas of state employment have free parking, in other areas parking is very limited and expensive.

What I like about the company

I work on a team where everyone gets along well and our Director supports us.

What I dislike about the company

The pay and benefits may lag behind the private sector, because increases have to be voted on by the legislature. This means you might have an awesome performance review and only receive 3/4 of a percent for a raise.

  • Team building and unifying events or programs would be very helpful.

What I like about the company

My colleagues and the clients we work with make the job feel meaningful and important to the community.

What I dislike about the company

Working in government creates a lot of red tape, and I believe upper management could eliminate some of that be delegating decision making to subordinates.

  • The biggest issue is the pay scale. We simply aren't paid enough. However, given the constraints, this will not be addressed. So, steps should be taken to reward employees in other ways (time off, for instance).

What I like about the company

I have had a great employment experience. The work I do is valued. We have a great team that works well together and delivers a superior product.

What I dislike about the company

The most difficult portion of the job is the compensation. The pay simply does not match what comparable employers are offering.

What I dislike about the company

The amount of money does not do justice for the amount of work you are required to do.
