I have been working at Arlington County

Pros

AC is stable, it has decent benefits, it has decent work-life balance, safe, attracts good people to work there.

Cons

Communication from management to employees stinks. EXTREMELY beaurocratic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It appears that you are secretive about things which should be communicated about so that employees can be involved.

    I worked at Arlington County

    Pros

    none. Stay away. Seriously. You've been warned. This place will destroy your soul and slowly kill you. It's not worth it. Go elsewhere.

    Unless you really like working as a local government flunkie, that is - in which case this will be the best job you never had to expend any effort on.

    Cons

    the job. The people. The stigma of working for a county government. The incompetent management and the huge bureaucracy. The changes in priorities on an hourly basis, and the fact that nothing gets done for years at a time despite promises to the Board to the contrary. The pay is substandard, and the benefits almost nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign immediately and let competent folks take over.

    I worked at Arlington County full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Friendly, low-stress atmosphere. Commitment to constituent service.

    Cons

    Department heads have a lot of latitude to set policies in their own offices. This can be good or bad, depending on the deaprtment.
