    I have been working at Miami Dade County part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Putting something impressive on your resume, meeting interesting people, opportunity to apply for open positions inside department.

    Cons

    upper management does not care about you.
    during the 2008 economy crash they placed unrealistic job performance expectations on staff .
    working in a dusty, dirty environment and dealing with odd homeless populations.
    Middle managers lack people skills, are rude, and micro managers.
    so much bureaucracy that nothing productive ever gets done or takes a very long time to get done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect all staff and hire middle managers and staff that work well with each other, that have college education, people skills and are not sour apples.

    Pros

    I contribute to Miami's environmental protection programs, I'm expose to analytical chemistry and the salary is decent.

    Cons

    I'm working with county systems that haven't been updated in years. Implementing change is almost impossible and people are not self motivated individuals. It's very hard to lead them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always welcome an innovating mind set.

    I worked at Miami Dade County full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many departments to chose to work for. Always busy, lots to learn, awesome experience. But there is no work-life balance, compensation is getting worse every year.

    Cons

    Due to budget cuts, your salary can be reduced from one year to the next. Not stable for job or career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage the money and expenditures across the board and make smarter decisions. Get rid of the strong Mayor and put back the govt it used to have.
