I have been working at Milwaukee County full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Few and far between. Underpaid so much consider your time a donation to the community.

Cons

Low wages, pay freeze since 2010, pension contributions, no hope for promotion, no incentive for job performance, under educated unmotivated coworkers, management and elected officials on vacation more often than at work, etc...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

File for bankruptcy and dissolve.

    Pros

    Great job for entry level workers.

    Cons

    It is very TOUGH to advance here. As with most businesses, in order to get a promotion you need to be best friends with management or know someone who is. Benefits are competitive compared to private sector costs, but are increasingly high with each passing year. Nearly everyone except high level management is underpaid and overworked. Worker morale is low due to low pay and increasing demands. In this age of economic turmoil you have to count your blessings in even having a job, but there definitely needs to be reform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management, and by that I mean those above low level Supervisors, know exactly what is going on, thus the status quo. With no real union power workers are at the mercy of those at the top of the food chain.

    I worked at Milwaukee County full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great insurance, but very costly, Other benefits like a pension were nice but added to the deductions from my bi weekly paycheck..... There was plenty of down time were you could goof off and take a walk or something.

    Cons

    ...Actually so much so that I was making only $750 every two weeks! The hours were kind of long, I know 9 hours isn't long but a mandatory 1 hour unpaid lunch is kind of ridiculous. I would have rather just went home an hour early seeing as how you could just eat at your desk anyway....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management was good but at some times kind of one sided and really only benefited the people they were close to or friends with.
