    Pros

    The benefits package and work life balance is nice. You get a good deal of time off which is needed in this environment.

    Cons

    No appreciation of staff, politics are absolutely atrocious! Upper management and commissioners in no way follow the County Mission Statement or values.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to start to appreciate and value staff! Do what's right in regards to the citizens (tax payers) and staff.

    Pros

    Decent benefits including health, dental, federal holidays off, and FRS retirement. Easy to move around once you're in and network with employees in different departments.

    Cons

    Overall low morale among employees, especially those that have been with Seminole County for 10+ years. Employees are undervalued for their hard work and dedication. Sick time and personal leave and one in the same. Not enough professional development/management training opportunities available. The amount of work versus compensation does not add up.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at why there is an extremely high turnover rate. The system of management needs to be overhauled big time at every level.


  3. Leadership tells employees be thankful to have a job.

    Pros

    Paid time off and decent healthcare are the only things worthwhile that they offer.

    Cons

    Leadership does not value its employees. Low moral and high turnover. Employees received one cost of living raise in six years while leadership gets annual raises. Annual employee reviews are rigged. Managers instructed what ratings they are able to give employees so that they fall within a given bracket to justify raises or lack thereof.

    Advice to Management

    It is sad to see so many people that chose to work in the public sector be neglected by the same people they helped put in office. Your employees are your greatest asset. Invest in your people. They will care when you care.

    Pros

    Probably decent benefits and a great place for dumb people.

    Cons

    People are boring and stuck in a rut. No creativity. No new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. You are not nearly as good as you think you are and you'd never cut it in the private world.
