    I worked at Tarrant County full-time for 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 for 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.
