Juvenile Court senior probation officer

Probation Officer III (Current Employee)

ProsThe state has excellent benefits including generous vacation and sick leave, good health insurance at a very reasonable price, and good retirement benefits. State employees also have a lot more job stability then the private sector. Working for the state allows a good balance of work / personal life.

ConsThe salary as a state employee is far below what would be expected in the private sector. Also, any secondary employment has to be approved and cannot have any potential conflicts of interest making it very hard to find a second job that uses your job skills. Another con is the lack of opportunities for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more training and opportunities for staff who are interested in advancing to management positions.
