    I have been working at King County full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with some really smart and ambitious people.
    There are good opportunities to move around the county to different departments and divisions to try out new roles and responsibilities once you've proven yourself to people higher up the chain.
    Fair compensation for public service.
    Time off.

    Cons

    There's always a couple of bad apples and at the professional level it can be hard to find a work life balance.
    King County will need to do a significant amount of work to prepare for the retirement of baby boomers and hand the reigns over to younger staff. There hasn't been enough transition and knowledge transfer for this process to go smoothly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow-through with the initiatives that are regularly announced with great enthusiasm only to silently die in the shadows completely unfulfilled and forgotten by the decision makers.
