    Fulfilling Career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCobb County is a great place to work, live and play. Employment available for every level of expertise in most every field of work. Great parks and recreational facilities.

    ConsPromotional opportunities limited at times, but that is typically because employees often stay until retirement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoing things the same way because it was successful in the past doesn't always make it the best strategy for today. Embrace new technology.

    Decent Work Environment but Very Low Pay

    Administrative Position (Current Employee)

    ProsYou have a predictable schedule, paid holidays & weekends, co-workers are civil to work with, health insurance/dental benefits are above average.

    Conslow pay including no cost of living increases-what you initially make is what you will be stuck with until you find another job, zero room for advancement

    Advice to Senior Managementgive salaries that are consistent with the industry average

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very little room for advancement

    Judicial Administrative Technician (Current Employee)
    Marietta, GA

    ProsIt's a stable job in an unstable economy. If that's what you're looking for then this place will offer you that at least.

    ConsThe workload is heavy and pay is extremely poor
    Supervisors work many years to max out at a level that barely allows them to live a comfortable life

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the requirements for your administrative staff (education and experience)
    Offer better/more training
    Increase monetary compensation

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
