    Pros

    A paycheck every two weeks.

    Cons

    Desperately lacking adequate leadership. Supervisors are bottom of the barrel. Supervisors don't allow employees to ask other employees questions. Everyone must work and lunch the same hours. No flexibility, no training, very low morale, very oppressive gloomy place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Clean the slate and start over with new supervisors for beginners.

  8. Neurotic and over-dramatic micro-managing

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Enough employees so that each employee can specialize rather than be asked to unreasonably multi-task.

    Cons

    Unclear procedures and constantly changing rules. Unnecessary focus on image and what employees are wearing.

  9. Very nice co-workers, fast-paced work environment but not a chance of advancement within the office.

    Pros

    Very friendly environment, benefits are excellent, work is steady and not too difficult, the office is clean and managed by the building to keep it that way everyday, & the equipment is updated regularly to ensure work gets done timely.

    Cons

    There is No Chance of Advancement within the office and there seems to be some favoritism sometimes between supervisors & certain workers. Plus, there is no loyalty to workers who work very hard for the office & give alot of their effort & time to complete work & projects on time.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to allow workers who have been with the court for many yrs,the opportunity to advance higher in the office & give them more responsibility to excel. Also, don't allow supervisors to show favoritism to certain people in the office & allow all the workers the chance to prove themselves and succeed.

  10. Great people, great environment and caring management. My co-workers became life-long friends and mentors.

    Pros

    My coworkers were great people and the place felt like home. You couldn't ask for a better group of people.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for upward mobility but that's due to extremely low turnover. Change happens when someone retires.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you've been doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits package and decent pay for the work

    Cons

    Constant threat of layoffs due to budget shortfalls each new fiscal year

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to stop favoring certain employees for personal reasons and start focusing on work performance relevant to the job.
