    I worked at Baltimore County, MD full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Vacation and paid sick leave

    Cons

    Narrrow-minded management; good old boy network is still in place; for some jobs, salaries are not competitive; the new retirement plan requires working for 35 years to get a full pension; if you want to work for Baltimore County, try the school system or the community college as the salaries are better across the board

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Baltimore County, MD full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    lots of vacation/leave time, lots of time off

    Cons

    managers change rules constantly including hours, what is allowed one month is not allowed the next. Always threaten to "take away" any percs, yet managers use many of the percs themselves and are not able to, but rules do not apply to them or their favorites. If you have any disability, they do not accomodate you, even with doctors documentation. LOTS of turnover, "senior" employees usually have 3 years

    Advice to Management

    let your professionals be PROFESSIONALS do not micromanage.
