I worked at Howard County Government full-time

Pros

Howard County Maryland is comprised of a population that is highly educated, savvy, and knowledgeable. As a result, their expectations of the county government are high, and fortunately they have elected officials that are very aware of this reality. Overall, great employer.

Cons

As with all government organizations, there is bureaucratic "red tape" that must be handled accordingly. I experienced a minimal amount of political game playing, but eventually it became enough to justify moving on in my career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to seriously consider the young professionals in your organizations. They are your successors, and as such you should train them for greatness. Encourage their ambition by offering them opportunities, and in turn they will make you look great.
