    I have been working at Travis County, Texas as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    This was a paid internship for college students, which is pretty rare for an internship. Management made it clear that it was very important to pay the interns for their time. Made me feel appreciated.

    Cons

    Change in management when new people were elected. This obviously happens at any place with elected officials, but it is something everyone should be aware of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice to management.

  6. Often a life-long career choice

    I have been working at Travis County, Texas full-time

    Pros

    It's rewarding to make a living serving the public, and those who find the right fit are satisfied working their entire careers at this one employer. Health benefits and vacation time are better than average.

    Cons

    It takes a long time working hard to get a promotion, because Travis County employees don't often leave for other jobs elsewhere, and new positions are seldom created. Salaries are below what most would make for similar jobs in the private sector in Austin, particularly for skilled positions.

    I have been working at Travis County, Texas

    Pros

    Good retirement plan, a wellness center to help save co-pays with insurance, mostly pleasant co-workers, longvity pay after 4 years, fair accumlation of vacation and sick time, reasonable number of holidays.

    Cons

    commuting to downtown or Airport site, parking can be a problem as it takes 7+ years to get a parking space, pay is better outside of the county, some employees don't pull their fair share of the work load,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yearly performance evaluations should be done with the employees, and employees should have an opportunity to evaluate management. Try to be more open to suggestions by employees. Stand behind the people that work for you.
