    I worked at Yuma County Government full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    Salary to duties do NOT MATCH. They expect way too much for next to nothing in pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a real salary study. Not just a local comparison.

    I worked at Yuma County Government full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Paid holidays and other benefits are good. Depending on the dept and supervisor - there are good ppl to work with! Pay is good although there hasn't been raises in years.

    Cons

    Lack of supervision on the upper management. No raises in years. Evaluation process. Unless you are upper management there is no support or backing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Administration need to be more involved with upper management so that everyone is treated fairly. Listen to all employees input for the betterment of the county.

    I have been working at Yuma County Government

    Pros

    The IT department of Yuma County is a great place to work. Lots of nice people. The work/life balance is a real value here. I have had a great opportunity to work with, and learn a broad range of technologies. Working for the County is stable with great benefits too. The County Administrator, Assessor and Board of Supervisors have done a good job with budgeting during this downturn and there have been no layoffs or furloughs.

    Cons

    For IT positions the County is very non-competitive salary-wise. This has made it difficult to hire good talent and often positions are open for months or are under-filled. Formal training has not been a priority of our last CIO (he leaves this week tho). So employees have to be resourceful and self-directed in getting the information to keep the systems running.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get the salaries up and reduce the turnover
