    None. It's all political cronies and incompetents. They wouldn't take advice because most of them couldn't care less about doing good work.

    I have been working at Cuyahoga County full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great job for resume
    Decent pay if you have no children
    Awesome benefits that cost barely anything
    Great new location for commuters
    Local 860 Union
    Great job as a stepping stone during college

    Cons

    Encourage employees to tell on each other constantly which creates a very awkward and sometimes hostile environment
    Pay is under poverty level if you have a family
    Constant drama- feels more like The Real World than work
    No room for compromise regarding your time off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like you care not like a piece of a machine. Care about people feelings and work with them not against them. People work hard for people they feel deserve it. Also, you get what you pay for. Salary sucks. Most workers have utilities being shut off and you just watch. And last but not least, stop making people feel like you are waiting for them to do something wrong.

    I worked at Cuyahoga County full-time

    Pros

    The cost employees pay for excellent health insurance plans is minimal. The County has an exceptional and generous benefit package.

    Cons

    All governmental organizations have considerable dead weight-those irritating few who don't desire to improve services.

    Reward innovative thinking!!

    I worked at Cuyahoga County full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The insurance benefits are inexpensive, lots of paid time off. Good, stable work hours.

    Cons

    Favortism and corruption! Lots of slacking employees. There is absolutely no consistency... The county employees are notorious for hiding when they should be working. I know former colleagues of mine who planned their wedding, did grad school homework, clipped coupons, etc. all on work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees who are dedicated and work hard and reprimand those who don't do their jobs.

    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Cleveland, OH

    Pros

    It is reliable, and, for the most part, secure. You are given time to learn the job and there is time to improve.

    Cons

    There is little chance for advancement and no raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not around much to assist employees in actually functioning on the job. Co-workers are left to fend for themselves in order to figure out the job duties on their own. It appears managers are not actually capable of training, they push that on the workers to help each other. Luckily, that seems to work. Management appears to be in so many meetings, they are not available for helping workers with questions. They actually get angry when asked work-related questions.

    Stable place, great pension package.

    Current Employee - Social Worker III in Cleveland, OH

    I have been working at Cuyahoga County full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, social workers work really hard to help families. Great training. Social worker positions are union position so your guaranteed an annual raise.

    Cons

    Raise are very small, too much bureacracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking for someone to blame whenever something goes wrong. The social worker are only in the homes once or twice a month and are not miracle workers.
