I worked at Muskegon County, MI full-time

Pros

Honestly, I can not give one positive reason for working here.

Cons

No support from management. Bullying. Play favorites. Hierarchical. No positive communication. No chance to advance or contribute strengths. Collaboration between coworkers not allowed. Secretive. untrustworthy. Any personal information given to supervisors is used against you. Negative. Unhappy. "The Good Old Boys Club" alive and well here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Believe in the people you hire. Look for the good in people and give them a chance to contribute there strengths. Support them in BOTH their professional & personal growth. Be respectful. Open yourselves to honest round table communication. Teach your followers to be leaders, Smile more. Enjoy ALL the people you work with. Support not suppress. Understand not judge. Lift up not push down.

    I have been working at Muskegon County, MI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many challenges from employer (management), employees (assessors) as well as other county department needs (that is, prosecutor, public health, public works, drain commission, information systems, clerk's office, county administrator...and many more).

    Cons

    See above...mainly, there are too many requirements for one, or even two, people to keep up with...would be nice to expand the GIS capability within the county...presently, it's only a pipe dream years away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find (make) revenue available to expand the county's GIS capabilities to all departments needing it...many, if not all, will benefit.

    I have been working at Muskegon County, MI

    Pros

    The direct line staff are some of the most caring and hard working people I have ever worked with. They are awesome to be with in the trenches of the community.

    Cons

    The management really does not show interest in the direct line staff or the people served. The micromanagement provided by the self proclaimed elite upper management is highly unrealistic and detrimental to effectively meeting the many needs of the improvised or compromised persons in the community

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know staff outside of your clique. Learn to appreciate those who strive to uphold basic values of humanity as they strive to meet the needs of those without resources in the community. Remember that the staff you oppress are educated and very capable. Treat all staff with respect and dignity.
