    I worked at Frederick County Government full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits Ideal work environment Good work hours

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. It sends a message to your current employees when you hire someone from the outside instead of giving your qualified, currently employees the opportunity to grow.

    Pros

    Very good benefits package, especially generous holidays, annual leave, sick leave, and bereavement leave. Flexible hours...discretion to work whatever hours are needed to get the job done. Can be a good opportunity to work with some cool technology and make a positive difference, i.e. help make a county government function better and do a better job of delivering its services to the tax payers.

    Cons

    Correlation between actual expertise and job classes is out of whack, and badly needs to be inventoried and re-synchronized to restore a sense of fairness among non-management employees. Performance ratings depend not only on your own manager, but the assessments of other managers who you don't necessarily report to. Whether you get a promotion requires consent of all division managers. Work can be extremely compartmentalized so that skills are not well-rounded and balanced...which has prevented some employees from earning a promotion, only available to someone who acquires a complete skillset. The delegation of responsibilities does not support balanced skills growth.

    Advice to Management

    To get the best productivity and highest morale out of its employees, management would do well to openly address the perceptions described in the "Cons", and encourage some frank dialogue with employees on the subjects raised.
