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.

    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.

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

    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.
