    I worked at Cobb County Government

    Pros

    Cobb 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Cobb County Government full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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