    I worked at Tarrant County full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with the public and make a difference. The retirement is very good and even when the economy was at its worst there were no lay-offs.

    Cons

    Health insurance is not what is was, each year it has cost more and the benifyts have gone down. Most departments are good to work for EXCEPT District Clerk and IT, though Public Health is beggining make this list. Both departments have created a toxic and hostile work enviroment, especially IT. There is some senior leadership with no IT experience and they are makiing major decisions which has caused serious confusion within the organization. They say all the right words but do not follow through. The primary tool for motivating employees is to write them up so moral is at the lowest it has ever been and there does not seem to be any possibility of the situation improving anytime soon. Senior IT leadership also has a very low opinion of anyone who has been there for any length of time, EVERY senior leadership position has been filled by outside candidates, there is no potintial for existing employees to be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say you are going to do, insincerity is remembered for a very long time. Use employees with experience, you do not need to go outside the organization every time to find good talent.

    I worked at Tarrant County full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    good benefits which you can get with any department within Tarrant county.

    Cons

    Everything from the director's overbearing, childish tantrums to the clients that come into the office expecting handouts for not effort on their part. Not everyone that walks in to that office is that bad but the majority of them are. There are several cases in which people really do need the help but it is near impossible to actually help the ones that really need it. There are some really great people that work there but the work environment is stressful. If you're looking for a m-f standard full time hours, don't bother here. You will be expected to work over your time even if you get overtime hours, after a long day of getting yelled at from your boss and the clients, its not worth the hassle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your employees better. If you did that you might actually be able to keep clerks a longer time than you seem to be able to. Learn to control your temper. Stop talking down to your employees in front of other employees. Stop lying. Stop trying to cover your own butt and do something good for the department instead.

    I worked at Tarrant County full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The organization rarely has layoffs.

    Cons

    Micro-managing and slow moving. Used to be family friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People work so they can live. They don't live so they can work. This organization's pay scale is too low for 24-hr commitment required in the technology division. New leadership does not appreciate single parents, women in the workplace or minorities.

    I have been working at Tarrant County full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to meet solid professionals, business owners, judges and the like. Best pension plan out there. Excellent security if you have an inherent fear of being jobless.Not very much stress if that is your thing. Get to leave exactly at 5pm which allows you to have a very nice social life.

    Cons

    Mundane work. It's like building an object with the same set of legos day in and day out. Lack of education in the upper management system. Promotions are typically given to those that have stuck it out-not necessarily to individuals with talent. Hard work is often overlooked. Pay is mediocre at best unless you get into management. Very few management positions.
