I worked at Travis County, Texas

Pros

I love the laid-back feel. Of course, different areas offer different working environments, but I was satisfied.

Cons

No one leaves so it's hard to get a permanent position.

Allow a fair hire; don't only grant jobs on the "hook up".

    Pros

    Good retirement plan, a wellness center to help save co-pays with insurance, mostly pleasant co-workers, longvity pay after 4 years, fair accumlation of vacation and sick time, reasonable number of holidays.

    Cons

    commuting to downtown or Airport site, parking can be a problem as it takes 7+ years to get a parking space, pay is better outside of the county, some employees don't pull their fair share of the work load,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yearly performance evaluations should be done with the employees, and employees should have an opportunity to evaluate management. Try to be more open to suggestions by employees. Stand behind the people that work for you.
