  1. "Anoka County can do better."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Anoka County full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My position allows me a lot of opportunities to develop programs based on resident’s needs and management sees the value of allowing this flexibility.

    Cons

    The pay is embarrassingly low in every division which causes high employee turnover.

    I worked at Anoka County full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with IT customers was a great experience

    Cons

    IT management is terrible - unorganized, treats employee's with such disrespect, promotes pitting employees against each other, plays personal favorites and pick out certain employee's to make their life miserable

    Advice to Management

    Clean House

    I worked at Anoka County full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and extremely relaxed atmosphere. Good work / life balance. The work is fun if you know what you're doing.

    Cons

    Reporting structure is very shaky and people are put in positions they should not be in. No support from upper management when issues are voiced and managers claim to not be micro managers but there is a lot of passive micro management going around. Mostly due to inexperienced managers still trying to do the job of their direct reports or still trying to learn how to do their own jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Review your candidate's resumes more thoroughly and ensure the candidates are experienced enough for the position. When you place an incompetent individual in a elevated role, it affects all other employees below. Understand the qualities and strengths of each individual.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. . . . . . words words words

    Cons

    Department Director does not seem to support our section at all. Insane amount of hostility in our department. Manager is afraid of conflict and does not deal with the issues in his/her department. It feels as though employees do not have the support needed to effectively do our job.

    Advice to Management

    none
