    Good Benefits, excellent retirement plan, good people, flexible schedule. Harris County is a good place to work. If you are a new lawyer, the experience you get here is very beneficial to your future career.

    Limited opportunities for advancement, pay scale is limited, the performance reviews are arbitrary or non existent. The ability to cross train is not always present and your skill set can be limited by the scope of the work.

    Be more attentive to your staff, the needs of the employees, the payment system and the system for evaluation for promotions and raises.

    Pros

    Starts at $13.00/hr
    Repettion throughout 8 hour shift.

    Cons

    2 shift rotation: Early morning, and late morning starts
    Career advancement is limited (experience does not put you into another position alone)

    Advice to Management

    Find more ways to appeal to you workers besides working for the greater good of the community; we don't mind the positive motivation but the overwork and underpaid notion continues to set this organization's office moral back.
