    Pros

    As part of the summer internship program offered by the local government of Ulster County, I was involved in a variety of activities, ranging from more menial tasks like data entry to more engaging ones like event planning and marketing.

    Cons

    Overall, the pros greatly outweigh the cons, but if I were able to make changes to the program, I would have added more of an emphasis on the marketing and even planning opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!


  2. Cronyism, poor management, no personnel support, and illegal practices

    Pros

    The pay is far higher than the county average for similar positions. The parking lot was full of luxury cars.

    Cons

    I really enjoyed my work here and found it very fulfilling, but the environment was very unprofessional here. There were many reports of employees who had other jobs during the day and were paid for full-time work here at the same time. They were typically "protected" by someone in the system. Ethics abuses were well-known by insiders and people in the community. Senior-level staffers paid into the campaign coffers (as must be reported by campaign finance law) of the County Executive before starting their jobs. Harassment occurred and could not be reported to the personnel office -- people were afraid of retaliation for making such reports. It was clear that people were fired for questioning this entire system.

    Advice to Management

    It is such a shame that government is run this way. It is no wonder people don't trust you!

    Pros

    The people that I worked at the Ulster County government offices were competent and professional, making work there enjoyable every day.

    Cons

    As a part time employee, it did not seem like there would be opportunity to become full time in the near future.
