I have been working at Multnomah County full-time

Pros

I joined Multnomah County from the private sector and was a little worried because of the "government worker" stereotype. I have been pleasantly surprised and am finding things move a lot faster and it is easier to get things done than in several of the companies I have worked for. Here are some pros: Benefits (of course) Great managers who are open and trust their employees expertise. Positive. Genuine focus on diversity, I feel like I can be myself and it is great working with open minded people of all ethnicities, national origins, ages, etc Open to new ideas and can actually push them through, not nearly the bureaucracy I expected The work is very interesting. I'm constantly challenged.

Cons

While most of the people I work with are energetic and talented, there are a handful that seem a bit complacent and unwilling to learn new skills.

Advice to Management

Put more focus on process improvement across departments.

    I worked at Multnomah County full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, salary, flexibility, opportunities to expand experience and change positions. Health benefits very good, especially when the costs are compared to many other employers. Employees are encouraged to learn new skills and move into higher level positions.

    Cons

    Managers could be better about supporting employees and giving direction when requested. Middle and upper management could be more responsive.

    Advice to Management

    Employee recognition could be improved.

    Pros

    The pay is comparable and the benefits are really good.

    Cons

    Management is secretive and it's hard to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    No more testing for promotion...performance based promotion benefits the agency more.
