    Gwinnett County Government

    Financial Analyst II (Former Employee) Lawrenceville, GA

    ProsManagement, for the most part, understands that family comes first. Sick kids, school events, etc. are acceptable.

    ConsNo raises for employees for about the last 5 years. Upper management puts people in the wrong places doing jobs they don't know how to do. People rarely get promoted; new people with no experience are brought in and given choice positions while tenured, experienced employees are left behind. The result? Low morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of employees and they will take care of Gwinnett County. Value their contributions and knowledge, promote from within. Respect them, listen to them, help them grow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Was once a shining example of well run government, now sinking into abyss

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAll the pros were there a few years ago, but very few remain. Probably the only good thing to say is you have decent job security.

    ConsNew management (County Administrator and the Assistant County Administrator) have bungled this place up. No communication, no leadership, no long-term vision. People can't wait to retire if they have been there a while and others can't wait to get out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a new CA and especially a new Assistant CA/CFO that has a decent education from an accredited school.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
