    I have been working at Ramsey County

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good.
    Solid training opportunities (technical, job based, and general interest topics)
    Micro-managing is kept to a minimum.

    Cons

    Some of the worst management personnel I have ever encountered. Specific supervisors are disrespectful, non-communicative, and lack even the most basic etiquette when it comes to working with others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable for lack of follow through, poor behavior, and inability to perform the job. Have performance evaluations that actually count and carry weight.

    Pros

    The majority of employees are dedicated and committed to the mission of Ramsey County.

    The refusal by management to tackle problems and eliminate incompetent department directors.

    Foster an atmosphere of sharing, listen to employees at lower grade level than directors, and implement necessary changes.
