    The Intensive Family Treatment Team is a gem in a tough business

    ProsIFT provided great therapy services to a sometimes difficult population. Great way to gain experience in multiple types of treatment/issues. Colleagues extremely supportive.

    ConsHigh stress environment. Clients often court-ordered and didn't want to be there. Larger agency sometimes cumbersome to work with.

    Jefferson County Road and Bridge.

    Equipment Operator (Current Employee) Golden, CO

    ProsThe benefits are outstanding, great retirement matching, college reimbursement, family orientated, several paid holidays every year. above average salary.

    Highly Bureaucratic Governmental Agency

    Division Director (Current Employee) Golden, CO

    ProsStaff (for the most part), location, state and regional affiliations. Across the County, most new hires are very eager to do a good job.

    ConsInsititutionalized thinking, lack of leadership, lack of accountability, lack of integrity and ethics. Because the county's leadership is elected, it's difficult to change the culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire/promote department leaders with vision, integrity, ability to challenge institutionalized thinking, and some business acumen. Have the confidence and tenacity to fire those without.

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

    Stagnation abounds

    Mid-Level Manager (Former Employee) Golden, CO

    ProsGreat location, easy commute, abundant wildlife viewing

    ConsUnclear management structure, constant reorganization in the name of "improvement", knee-jerk responses, lack of accountability, lack of communication, lack of vision, lack of continuity, lack of transparency, lack of interest in evolving

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's still a "good ol' boy" network at Jeffco. If you're "in", the sky is the limit. If you're "out", quit now while you still have some self-respect. So much potential for growth, so little interest. Jeffco's motto is "We're broken and we like it that way."

    Not for the weak of heart

    Analyst (Current Employee) Golden, CO

    ProsGreat benefits, great work life balance

    ConsPoor pay comparatively, organization lacks integrity, culture of fear, high performers are singled out for intimidating non-performers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementComplete restructuring, talent is leaving and will continue to do so. Squeaky wheels do not neccessarily bring objective insight or accurate analysis of workplace culture.

    Jefferson County Review

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Golden, CO

    ProsThere are talented and smart people working for Jefferson County in all areas of the county.

    ConsUnprofessional senior management. The promotion of county personnel to management positions when they lake the credentials and experience. This negatively impacts everyone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe environment is very political. It's important to hire outside talent that can bring new ideas and innovation to the county and citizens.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
