    Pros

    The DSO is a good steady job. Set hours. A very good benefits and retirement package. It's a Civil Service job, so there are very good employee protections in place.

    Cons

    There is absolutely NO professional development of any kind whatsoever. Leadership is severely lacking.

    Former Employee - Support Staff  in  Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Support Staff in Dallas, TX

    Pros

    Great benefits, especially for retirement; little turnover; a lot of opportunities to move up within the court system if you are a prosecutor; flexible schedules for some support staff; friendly staff; supportive managers.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement for support staff; very busy building - crowded elevators and parking lots especially on Mondays; metal detectors; political atmosphere during election years; lots of competition to get a job here; some cases are sad to hear about especially child abuse cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep political views out of decision-making; offer training opportunities for support staff to expand their knowledge about the criminal process.
