    I worked at State of Nevada full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A great community of people work there. Job stability is great and the retirement is great.

    Cons

    Because of the job security and it being a government job, it pays less than the private sector for a lot of positions and the employees of the State are constantly complaining about it. There’s also an alarming amount of lazy workers throughout that can make it hard to concentrate on doing a good job when you sit across from someone who spends eight hours a day on their cell phone.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at State of Nevada full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The State can be a great place to work but only if you make the right Agency choice.

    Cons

    PERS (retirement system) is excellent but if you have significant private sector experience (and social security credits) do the math before accepting a job. Your social security benefit WILL be reduced by your PERS benefit because of the federal windfall provision statute. This is actually a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Personnel rules, policies, and procedures aren't simply suggestions; they are meant to ensure fairness, equity, and prevent discrimination in the workplace.

        I have been working at State of Nevada full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Strong benefits, lots of training opportunities. After 1 year probationary period, many opportunities for growth and lateral movement.

        Cons

        Government pay scales are lower than private industry; education and experience not fully considered when placement on pay scale is determined.

        Advice to Management

        When recruiting and hiring from private industry, consider experience and education of new hires when deciding placement on the "range" of salaries for the positions.
