    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.
