I work for the New York State DOT and am wondering if there is anything different about working for NCDOT? I work in the Civil Engineering Tech. field inspecting or designing highways and bridges and wondering how jobs are down there?
Is the retirement better, worse or similair?
How are jobs?

Has anyone worked for new york state and then worked for the state of North Carolina? What are the differences??

Trust me, you don't want to work for NCDOT.

Worst state agency. Riddled with incompetence and bigotry.

I've heard the same DOT & DOC (corrections) are ones to stay away from...

This is completely anecdotal, but knowing people who work for both NY (where I'm from) and NC, NY is a way better state to work for.

I've heard it said that, yes, the taxes are very low here in NC, but it shows in the lack of resources and budgets given to any number of public agencies. NC may have low taxes, but you get what you pay for in some respects.

Again, I'm just going on what I've heard from others, as well as my experiences as a state employee in NY and my wife now working for the state here in NC.

Family health coverage runs about $500.

Good retirement plan.
