    I have been working at County of Kern full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a pretty relaxed atmosphere. After probation, you have to do something really dumb to get fired. I work in the assessor's office, and we have the option of working (4) ten hour days which is awesome.

    Cons

    It's a govt. agency, so the culture is very top-down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your best appraisers, not the crappy ones. Too many worthless people that can't even finish their own assignment move into management roles.
