    I have been working at Charleston County Government full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pros of working for this employer are the people, sense of community, benefit plans, and work hours. I work from 8:30 to 4pm most days. It is a good first job out of college. Room for promotion and a raise plan.

    Cons

    The cons are the salary, which can be expected with working for the government, the paid time off accrued, and the desk job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will be hard to keep college grads in this job because they will want a higher salary and to be challenged in a job that gives them personal satisfaction.

    I worked at Charleston County Government full-time

    Pros

    A majority of my colleagues were fantastic.
    Benefits = really only OK. CERTAINLY NOT EXCELLENT, what people think. After this obamacare act almost doubled in price, deductible, and coinsurance.

    Cons

    Parking downtown in the heart of tourist season which is every season now.
    If you enjoy the cookie cutter 9-5 , follow the leader Monday thru Friday schedule, this job is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please follow up with your employees and ask what they really feel about how things are going on. There are so many of us that have things to say but it's hard to transition into the addressing. Also

    I have been working at Charleston County Government

    Pros

    Helping the citizens, co workers and neighbors understand how county government assists them helps everyone to be more proactive, reactive, or neutral on a variety of topics that each individual should be concerned about inregards to they areas of play, clean water, sanitation, life style, etc

    Cons

    The public does not fully appreciate the services provided for individuals living in the county. Taxes, fees, transporation problems, road & bridges, wetlands, educational systems can all be heartaches because everyone may pay a tax but not all the money can be divided out equally to all areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to offer feedback and words of encouragement as we face these touch economic times. The public may not understand what we do as county employees, but we are employees know what we should be doing for them.
