    Pros

    Shelby County Government is a great place to work. You are able to work closely with children and their parents. Being able to work with teachers that love children and are dedicated to making children grow into productive citizens.

    Cons

    There are no downsides to working with Shelby County Head Start. Sometimes the language barrier can be a problem with the Hispanic children, but there is always someone there to help with this problem.

    Pros

    Work is easy most times. Pay is somewhat lower than private sector. Most of the people I deal with in other departments are easy to work with.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. Wishy-washy management in my department. No clear vision of where our department is going. Too much unnecessary fluff has infiltrated our department and adds no value or meaning to what we do. Lots of "us vs. them" mentality from the leadership when they don't like what other departments are doing. No sense of unity among elected officials or departments. Long term people set in their ways and resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to changes in technology and new ways of doing things.

    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 Management

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