    Former Employee - Office Assistant III in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Hillsborough County (Florida) full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Hillsborough County (Florida) full-time (more than 8 years)

    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!!!!
