I have been working at Lake County (Illinois)

Pros

Steady employment and excellent benefits including medical, dental, vision and a pension plan (for vested employees after 7 years) and traditional retirement plan

Cons

Like most government organizations, there is a certain amount of bureaucracy/ stagnation. By and large, though, this is a good employer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have been impressed with the level of communication during a challenging budget year. Thank you for preserving people's jobs whenever possible.

    I have been working at Lake County (Illinois) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've worked for Lake County for 6 years. Overall, it's a good place to work. Management is very competent and expectations, at least in my department, are well defined. The budget is under control, so I don't fear about being laid off. Co-workers have been great. Excellent benefits and flexible work arrangements. Work life balance is the best I've ever dealt with.

    Cons

    Like any government agency, there's some politics to deal with. Sometimes bureaucracy impedes progress. Yet, for a government agency things still run pretty smoothly. Pay could be a bit higher, but is competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, but look for ways to reward those who go above and beyond.
