    Pros

    The benefits are great. The stability of your position, whatever it might be is constant and does not change. Job security. Great people to work with, who share the same goals.

    Cons

    There is little chance for advancement even if you are qualified. There is a bit of favortism within departments. You will be noticed for your mistakes but not accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Managers vary in each department and there should be more structure in work habits when dealing with employees. Some of them micromanage and do more harm than good.

    Pros

    The best part I liked was the experience I got with the kids that were being held in detention. You got a chance to see their viewpoints and backgrounds of where they came from.

    Cons

    Workers never got an opportunity to help the kids grow, hours were terrible only received 20 min breaks because of shirt staffing. Gave the kids too much power at certain points, discipline system is terrible

    Pros

    Working for the Juvenile department gives you access to a great retirement and insurance system. You also have the freedom to leave your office to complete the various obligations of your job at your own discretion.

    Cons

    Constant policy changes and an ever increasing burden of responsibility is shifted upon probation Officers whom already have to deal with uncooperative children and families.

    Advice to Management

    A reduction in the unnecessary amount of contacts and shift of responsibility to complete these contacts more so towards the probationer will raise morale.


  8. Working for the government is always great because you have job security.

    Pros

    Hours are great. Good holiday and vacations.

    Cons

    Pay is bad. Using the sick time you have is difficult. To call and when you are sick you are reprimanded??

    Advice to Management

    Look at the overall experience and work of the individual and base raises and rewards on this
