    I worked at Tarrant County full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with the public and make a difference. The retirement is very good and even when the economy was at its worst there were no lay-offs.

    Cons

    Health insurance is not what is was, each year it has cost more and the benifyts have gone down. Most departments are good to work for EXCEPT District Clerk and IT, though Public Health is beggining make this list. Both departments have created a toxic and hostile work enviroment, especially IT. There is some senior leadership with no IT experience and they are makiing major decisions which has caused serious confusion within the organization. They say all the right words but do not follow through. The primary tool for motivating employees is to write them up so moral is at the lowest it has ever been and there does not seem to be any possibility of the situation improving anytime soon. Senior IT leadership also has a very low opinion of anyone who has been there for any length of time, EVERY senior leadership position has been filled by outside candidates, there is no potintial for existing employees to be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say you are going to do, insincerity is remembered for a very long time. Use employees with experience, you do not need to go outside the organization every time to find good talent.

    I worked at Tarrant County full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The organization rarely has layoffs.

    Cons

    Micro-managing and slow moving. Used to be family friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People work so they can live. They don't live so they can work. This organization's pay scale is too low for 24-hr commitment required in the technology division. New leadership does not appreciate single parents, women in the workplace or minorities.
