    Former Employee - Office Assistant III  in  Tampa, FL
    Former Employee - Office Assistant III in Tampa, FL

    Pros

    Encouraged to learn and do things independently. Very soon, I was independently completing things like, database management, payroll and benefits, scheduling of events, answering questions to the public, to provide needed information to a team project, filing, customer service and professionalism.

    Cons

    The organization structure changed several times and was a bit confusing at times as it was unclear of the intended intentions. But through those changes, I learned adversity and dealing with sudden changes in the workplace. (not really a con)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is a very important key!

    Pros

    Great opportunity of advancement and training.

    Cons

    People are placed into management/supervisory positions when they don't have the skills to supervise employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving bad managers from one position to another. If they have poor employee management skills, don't have them supervising others.

    Current Employee - Project Coordinator in Tampa, FL

    Pros

    Benefits, physical environment, location, co-workers

    Cons

    politics - resulting in job insecurity, unfair promotion tactics, no raise to employees in 5 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    THose of you in management who have six figure salaries may not suffer as much as we in the lower 5 figures when not having a raise in 5 years. Not only not having a raise in five years neither have there been any promotions in 5 years. You have systematically filling positions from the outside without consideration given to current employees. Shame on you!!!!

    Less focus on longevity, more focus on results

    Current Employee - Personnel ANalyst  in  Tampa, FL
    Current Employee - Personnel ANalyst in Tampa, FL

    Pros

    This job provides great benefits including low cost health insurance, pension, and employer paid deferred compensation. Once you have the job it is virtually impossible to lose it. If you only want to work 40 hours per week this is a great place to work because management discourages overtime.

    Cons

    Many of the employees have worked here forever and have an entitlement attitude. Longevity counts more than results so there is little incentive to go above and beyond. It is difficult working in an environment with employees that don't feel like they are valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management across the county needs to get on the same page. Stop the back biting and territorial game playing. The only one losing is the employees. Egos are big in this place and need to be checked at the door.

    Pros

    easy, fun, fulfilling, if you want a job with not a whole lot of responsibility and you like to talk around the water cooler its for you.

    Cons

    new ideas are always brought up in meeting but are never followed through with. everyone is worried about stepping on other people toes above them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    drop the after school program and start adding real recreational programs to the community besides baby sitting. act on your plan for the county
