  1.  

    Often a life-long career choice

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 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.
