    Pros

    While working for Shelby County Government, I enjoyed the diverse environment. I was able to work in several sections with the Department of Planning and Development. I really enjoyed working for the department.

    Cons

    I really can't say that there were cons to my job. The only con that I have is that, I was laid up do to the job ending. Our department was out sourced to a private sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By choosing me to work with you and your company will be beneficial for me as well as for you.

    I have been working at Shelby County Government

    Pros

    Every department at the county is very much like a family - as soon as you come in the door to work, you are welcomed with open arms. Many of the people who work at the county have worked there on average about 20+ years. Many of them love it. People there look out for each other. You cannot work at the county and go unnoticed - you will develop many friendships there as you work. Health and retirement benefits are excellent and very competitive with private industry.

    Cons

    You may not get paid as much in some positions as you would in private industry. But the tradeoff is in the health and retirement benefits, plus the stability of the jobs there. Sometimes, politics (it's government after all) play into some of the major decisions that get made in the departments. But those are minimal and come with the territory. Other than that, there really is not much to say negatively about the County.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work - the county is making great strides to be efficient across all departments. Great leadership is in place across many areas of county government. Keep investing in and developing employees.

    Pros

    The leave time and benefits are a much added value to my position.

    Cons

    There are too many people running our program without the best interests at heart. The people in charge are not competent and don't treat us as individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees be innovative and creative and learn to communicate! Try being honest!
