I have been working at State of Vermont

Pros

Outstanding colleagues
Opportunities for growth
Amazing information sharing
Everyday there is an opportunity to help others.
The work is interesting, challenging and varies from day-to-day.
Non-judgmental atmosphere
Very supportive environment
Open to suggestions and ideas

Cons

Sometimes clients are difficult. When that happens, that's when the real challenges happen!
There are plenty of rules and regulations overall, (as there should be given the nature of our business), but some seemingly basic protocols would ease some tensions. This is more an over-sight than management not wanting to offer them.

    Great place to work but growth is limited as most positions are held by employees for years

    I worked at State of Vermont

    Pros

    The PEOPLE!, hands down, I enjoyed the people I worked with but professionally there was not room for me to grow

    Cons

    Slow to change or update policy but that may have more to do with lack of funds than anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure who can fund raise but maybe turn some attention to that so that funds does not remain the issue holding all departments back

    I worked at State of Vermont

    Pros

    Great benefits, very little in the way of pressure, good hours

    Cons

    Job gets boring and management is constantly changing, out of touch and has no interest in developing the skills of their workers even when pressed to do so. Its extremely political and advancement has everything to do with politics and nothing with performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need fewer, many fewer managers and give the people that want to improve the place a chance to do more.
