    I worked at Arlington County full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good location, benefits, but low pay. Most people have a good work/life balance. Some people there care and are very good at what they do. Arlington County, in a lot of ways is very forward thinking in policy and strategic planning.

    Cons

    There are a lot of people that are in managerial positions that they have no right to be in. Because its government, you get promoted on tenure, not competence and experience. Bringing new ideas to the table, or being competent at your job are looked upon badly. There are good people there, but eventually they get fed up with the politics and leave. Huge problem with retaining millennials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a culture where managers are responsible for performance, incentives for actually doing their job (like not being fired). Promote on basis of experience, knowledge and competence. Create a culture where employees can bring up issues without fear of being isolated and punished.
