    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

    Former Employee - Intern in Minneapolis, MN
    Former Employee - Intern in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Hennepin County as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Location, benefits and perks are great. Pay is average for government work. Leadership tends to be seasoned employees looking to retire so moving up is a given if you have the qualifications.

    Cons

    Silo'd work, seasoned employees work at their own pace and don't like newcombers coming in and changing status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage new ideas and insights from new employees. Encourage seasoned workers to break out of their comfort zone and learn new and exciting processes.
