    It has been fairly easy going with lots of outside time.

    Current Intern - Engineering Technician Aide

    I have been working at Hennepin County as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's nice to be able to work outside. There is usually overtime opportunities. Most of the supervisors are nice and will teach you something new everyday.

    Cons

    Usually have to work as long as the contractors are working which can be over 15 hours per day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The project engineers and designers should listen and trust their technicians. They are the ones who are onsite everyday and know what's going on.

    I have been working at Hennepin County full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment--you set your own schedule and have independent decision making ability. About half the positions are internal promotions so great opportunity to grow. Opportunities to learn new skills. Great colleagues. Top management is creative and innovative

    Cons

    It's a government agency so change is hard. Middle management is not as good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A subject matter expert is not necessarily a good supervisor
