    Pros

    Great people to work with day in and day out.
    Average pay but above average benefits, pension plan for retirement, no cost single coverage for insurance coverages.
    Work life balance is great and the PTO is above average with 4 weeks starting.
    No traffic in chaska and parking isn't a problem
    Located on many walking trails for lunch time or after work walking / running needs.
    Farmers Market onsite in the summer / fall months on Wednesday's

    The population of the county is going to double in the next 20 years thanks to Hwy 212 so the outlook is great for county employees. Good job security.

    Cons

    It's a family environment so that brings it's challenges but not to many cons to be honest.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and push to go paperless!

    Pros

    Amazing work life balance - non contract workers receive 4 weeks plus holidays, sick time and comp time so all in all about 11 weeks off per year. Work life balance is right!!!

    Has a good retirement pension plan.

    Unbeatable single coverage for medical - it's $0 premiums plus they give you money back on your check for taking single coverage. Good wellness program with incentives for participation.

    Additional comp for waiving benefits

    Amazing co workers who care about what they do.

    The county is set to see lots of growth in the years to come.

    Cons

    Family medical coverage is average in terms of cost for most employers around us but way above average when compared to other counties.

    Parking can be tough at times if you start late.

    Advice to Management

    Things are in the right direction but the family premiums on the medical insurance need to be addressed.

    Pros

    flexible, family friendly, good benefits

    Cons

    total reorganization is happening...never know from day to day what your job might consist of. Different philosophy than other local public health departments. Staff moral low due to constant change and low employee recognition or inconsistent recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all staff equally.
    Have a supervisor not a manager...staff needs a clear direction on expections especially in times of constant change.
