I have been working at Pima County (Arizona)

Pros

Great people, great benefits, great opportunities for career growth, mostly supportive staff

Cons

Pay not as good as private sector (although better than other local government), occasionally, poorly managed projects cause poor work/life balance, promotions offered based on age and / or to outside candidates... lack of promotion from within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat internal employees better or equal to outside hires. Just because someone stays at the County doesn't make them lazy, incompetent or a blood sucking leech waiting for the state retirement! Don't pigeonhole staff.

    Pros

    Time off, no need to use your brain, its the government. Good group of coworkers trying to survive the management.

    Cons

    no promotions. will hire less qualified people over more qualified people from both inside and outside. No pay raises since 2007. Drastic increase in insurance, retirement, etc etc. Micromanaged. Increased parking fees in county owned lots for county employees.

    Current Employee - Workforce Developent Specialist - Employer Outreach Liaison in Tucson, AZ

    I have been working at Pima County (Arizona)

    Pros

    Opportunity to provides services to job seekers by helping them get back into the workforce after lay-offs, company closures or re-entry into the workforce. Being able to assist employers recruiting qualified candidates for employment opportunities. Providing training opportunities to qualified job seekers to upgrade skills or transition into new careers. Assisting all levels of job seekers i.e. professionals, para-professionals, skilled trades, adults, youth and mature workers to attain their goals and succeed in obtaining employment and self sufficiency.

    Cons

    Can be stressful when the economy is down and more and more individuals are out of work and fewer companies are hiring. Workers in this industry must be able to keep an open mind and understand the barriers that unemloyed individuals may have. Concerns about funding are always in the forefront as government spending to support these type of programs can fluctuate.
