    I have been working at Pima County Superior Court full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly people to work with, easy to get to (commute) ... Everything you do in IT helps the people who have to come to the court - meaningful work

    Cons

    No pay raises based on merit ... they county/state either votes to give the courts a raise or they don't!

    I have been working at Pima County Superior Court full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is almost impossible to lose your job once you pass the probationary period. All holidays are paid days off. The accumulation of sick and vacation time every pay period.

    Cons

    Working for Pima County is frustrating because they never seem to have any money to improve working conditions. And forget about getting a cost of living raise, they don't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for your employees. Remember the old saying, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." There's a reason the sheriff's department continually gets raises...their sheriff is vocal.

    I have been working at Pima County Superior Court full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are OK, some degree of flexibility, stability.

    Cons

    Pay raises are non-existent, so let the occasional bagel in the breakroom suffice. However, you must realize that many of these jobs are not worth a vast pay range. It is a typical bureaucracy, fit for all the stereotypes you can provide. The workload is unreal and you will not be supported by "management".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any advice will fall on deaf ears, which is fine because they wouldn't understand it anyway.

    I worked at Pima County Superior Court

    Pros

    Learn to not make assumptions about those defendants being charged. Learned about court procedure in the initial appearance court. Got to help people thAt nobody would give a chance.

    Cons

    Some of the corrections officers were very rude and inappropriate, not just with defendants benign charged, but also with me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is hard to give advice to the management as they are not even in control, the county has no funding to improve working conditions, and all rule is controlled by the county.

    Excellent opportunity to grow as a paraprofessional in a library. Learn basics of legal research and legal literature. Challenging customer service environment.

    Cons

    Lack of legal background can be a handicap. Very, very challenging customer service environment. Incumbent must appreciate the line between research assistance and legal advice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    I worked at Pima County Superior Court

    Pros

    The staff on the whole is pretty friends at PCSC. I worked for a judge that was friendly, fun, and not very intimidating.

    Cons

    Not every Judge is as nice as the one I worked for. I had to park blocks away and pay a lot per month since the parking below the courthouse was very limited.
