    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 Management

    I have no advice to management.

    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.

    Pros

    I love the laid-back feel. Of course, different areas offer different working environments, but I was satisfied.

    No one leaves so it's hard to get a permanent position.

    Advice to Management

    Allow a fair hire; don't only grant jobs on the "hook up".
