    Pros

    Arapahoe County is a good place to work. You are guaranteed a steady job, decent benefits, and some promotion potential

    Cons

    The expectations and workload is outrageous. Due to the high volume of work, employees are either mandated overtime or pulled in a million directions at once.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize how stressful daily work is for your employees, and don't make them feel guilty for taking time off

  6. Really good place to work

    I worked at Arapahoe County

    Pros

    The people here genuinely care about the citizens they serve and employees work hard and want to do a good job. Benefits are good and there is a pension plan which you don't see much anymore.

    Cons

    Difficult to expand and advance skills in some departments (Human Resources). Lots of retirement eligible employees which means lots of knowledge will likely leave the organization in the coming years. mandatory 7.5% contribution to pension plan (with 100% match) that vests upon 8 years of service. I personally saw this as a benefit, but others might not.

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly. Flexible schedules are available for some positions.

    Cons

    Very limited opportunities for advancement. Always trying to implement some new fad in management but they never stick with anything long enough to see results. Feels like a hamster wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Pare down the number of company initiatives. Pick a couple things and take the time to do them well. There is nothing to be gained in doing a lot of things not well.

    Pros

    Arapahoe County has many opportunities for technical people to grow and mature within the county and their role. They provide ongoing training, are dedicated to their constituents (fiscally responsible) and to their employees.

    Cons

    The only con was the pay scale was on the lower side

    Advice to Management

    Upper management may want to reconsider the 4 day work week.

    Pros

    It had good benefits for their employees

    Cons

    Micro-management was infuriating. I would say, "You're not supposed to do this." She would say, "Do it anyway." Later....she would come back when I was done and say, "You're not supposed to do this."

    Advice to Management

    Work is NOT your staff's priority. Work funds your life.

    Pros

    The flex schedule allows for a three day weekend every other week and there are a good amount of paid holidays

    Cons

    Uneven salary distribution. New employees are often hired at significantly higher salaries than long term employees.
