    Stepping Stone

    Clerk/Legal Service Clerk/Case Management Clerk (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsGreat 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

    ConsEncourage 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 Senior ManagementTreat 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.

    While the benefits were exemplary, the work environment was contentious and stressful.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward innovative thinking!!

    It's just like what you see in the media...only worse.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

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

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

    Job at the County

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

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

    ConsThere is little chance for advancement and no raises.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement 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.

    Social Worker III (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

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

    ConsRaise are very small, too much bureacracy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop 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.

    Corruption, collusion, favoritism, racisim, nepotism, injustice run rampant in Juvenile Court!

    Probation Officer (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsGreat vacation and sick time.
    Lots of holidays off.

    ConsNo room for advancement unless your part of the clique.
    Too many people getting away with "murder" while others get written up and terminated for nothing.
    Inept management who colludes with unions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to treat your employees that work their buts off for the kids and their families. Stop wasting time and money on personal vendettas. Maybe you should look at some your employees with connections to see what they get away with daily. Stop promoting juvenile court employees that have no business running departments. A complete restructuring needs to be revisited in the whole probation department. Specifically the overpaid managers in "specialized services and dockets" and the worthless community service department. Most of my colleagues and I placed our own kids.
