Solid government employer

I worked at Arapahoe County

ProsI felt secure at Arapahoe County even during the rounds of layoffs. I trusted my supervisor and manager to keep me in the loop, and they did. My supervisor and manager were both excellent - very supportive, gave positive feedback about my job performance, and were very gracious when I needed to take time off due to a death in my family. I also really liked being able to work a flex schedule (4 days per week) and we had good health care coverage. Overall, I felt this was a positive place to work.

ConsThe downside to working for Arapahoe County is that although I had a secure job, the pay scale was so poor that I had about $15 left at the end of the month. Of course, this was somewhat offset by my supervisor allowing me to work a flex schedule (four 10-hour shifts per week). The other downside was that I didn't think our payroll department was very professional -- not only did we only get paid once per month, but payroll botched our last direct deposit of 2008. I don't know how I managed to avoid bouncing checks. It was a nightmare.

Advice to Senior ManagementI am not sure why executive management is having the lower-level employees do the strategic planning for the company, but if the executives aren't doing the legwork on strategic planning, then my question remains...what is management doing?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
