    Not all it's cracked up to be.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe Pros to working here are good pay, OK Benefits, Good Time off, and they stay up on technology which means your not working on a 15 year old computer.

    ConsSome of the challenges to working at this job are leadership and promotions. Management here is not concerned with promoting employees unless those employees suck up to the managers. Promotions are not done on based on how hard you work or how much you know. In fact, the people that do the bare minimum are the ones that get rewarded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward the people the go above and beyond. Stop forgetting where you came from and that you once started out at the bottom.

    Dead End Job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork / Life balance can be good depending on team.

    ConsThe morale there was terrible. What would one expect when Senior Management will NOT promote from within. Any and all Supervisory positions are filled with people from the outside. An interesting contrary narrative to the managements statements that the workforce is appreciated and well respected. Don't work here if you can avoid it because you will not be able to advance your career without leaving like I did.

    very nice place to work

    Assistant Prosecuting Attorney (Current Employee) Pontiac, MI

    ProsOakland County is a nice place to work. Good benefits, good vacation time, numerous paid government holidays, health and wellness screenings, exercise classes available at lunch, nice people

    ConsTypical bureaucracy. There’s a ceiling to the amount of upward mobility. Promotions not always based on merit.

    Was good while I was at school. Not good after..

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible work schedule while I was in College

    ConsTotal lack of opportunity. The job you get hired into is the one you are stuck in unless you are friends with the right people in management. It is an uneven playing field and they keep trying to do more with less

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop playing favorites and create more opportunities for your employees
