I have been working at Milwaukee County full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of opportunities to learn and develop many skills

Cons

Few opportunities to grow beyond current positioning. Because everything is based on seniority, people who have worked longer get advanced, rather than the best performers.
Low pay.
Diminishing benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change up some civil service laws, change the culture of fear. Pay more. Don't cut the benefits every time you come short on money, is not the employees' fault, yet they bear the cost.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits and PTO

    Cons

    Majority of employees are only there for the paycheck and hate coming to work everyday. Old bureaucratic structure favors those with seniority, so it doesn't matter how well you do your job and new ideas go nowhere.

    I have been working at Milwaukee County full-time (more than a 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.
