    I have been working at Henrico County, VA

    Pros

    Wages are extremely high, benefits are outstanding

    If you come from the private sector, you will never be able to work here. People come in late, leave early, literally sleep all day at their desks management as well, worked in the utilities department and they were actually drinking at their desk, supervisor waiting out for his retirement turned the other cheek.

    I have been working at Henrico County, VA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fiscally Responsible and Organized. While the rest of the State was cutting employees and positions, Henrico County continued to look for ways to keep employees and develop their leadership skills to promote from within

    Cons

    Learning the Culture of the Government. An individual can't come into the County and automatically make moves. He/she needs to learn the power brokers and how the Business of Henrico County works. develop his/her style depending on their position and then go for it! It takes time and learning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep striving to be innovative and strengthen the moral of the employees

    Management should listen to their employees on the front line. There is definitely and control issue with management. High turnover lowers moral. Treat your employees well and they will perform.
