    I worked at Montgomery County Government - Maryland full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They provided great benefits, great County Executive and most of upper management. Also, they provided opportunities to be promoted within,

    Cons

    Some departments weren't as responsive as they could've been to employees, responsive to the public but not employees seeking information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training would be helpful, raises according to performance and performance based bonuses, not based on the same job group. You need to make at least $66k to live in the county where you work.

    Conflicts with customers and policies at times and getting support from central communications in regards to those policies.
