Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

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 Management

    File for bankruptcy and dissolve.
