    Pros

    The County provides a great salary, good benefits. while providing service to the community. Careers can be cultivated until one chooses to retire, with a great package waiting at the end of 30 years.

    Cons

    Many dedicated and hard workers can be found in this establishment. But lazy and corrupt people also can be found. Inept workers are hard to fire as the process for eliminating dead weight is full of red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Value those that work hard and provide a professional skill set but please find a way to stop rewarding mediocre performance through merit increases.

    Pros

    great benefits, paid vacation and sick leave, medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    where I worked the warehouse was very behind in technological improvements i.e. no inventory or warehouse management systems. not even bar code scanner or a inventory locator system. Currently there are using hand written inventory cards for a inventory valued at over $2 million.

    Advice to Management

    Hire knowledgeable senior management that can make advancements in warehouse / inventory management technologies i.e. computers, hardware, software, bar code scanners, inventory locators etc..

    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 Management

    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.
