    I have been working at Brown County Wisconsin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generally, good people to work with; Responsive supervisors. Schedule is more flexible than other employers tend to be. Benefits are decent, but are not heading in a positive direction

    Cons

    Pay, and opportunities for advancement. If you are settled in the area, it can be an OK gig. If you are starting out your career, look elsewhere. (4 different HR directors in the five years I have been here). Morale is not high

    Advice to Management

    Start paying people actual raises, or come up with a way to get people to different pay levels... People are leaving, and there is trouble finding good candidates

        I have been working at Brown County Wisconsin full-time

        Pros

        Co workers are nice.

        Cons

        Other counties pay much higher. Many employees do not hold their own weight and they expect everyone else to pick up for them.

        I worked at Brown County Wisconsin full-time

        Pros

        Flexible schedule. Serious about onboard training. Supportive work culture (seeking help and learning is encouraged).

        Cons

        Case managers are stressed with heavy caseloads and therefore often express negativity, which is discouraging.

        I have been working at Brown County Wisconsin full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Excellent benefits and paid time off. Employees take great pride in their work. Serving the Brown County community is rewarding. Good work/life balance. Brown County is a good employer for millennial's- great place to build your resume for a few years (you tend to wear many hats due to turnover so you do a lot in your role in a short period of time).

        Cons

        The pay scale across the entire county is years behind comparable counties. Morale is poor. Lack of training for managers creates dysfunctional departments. Not a place to stay for a long time, though retirement program is good. Long term employees are disgruntled and jaded. Upper management (County Exec/Admin/Corp Counsel) seemingly uninterested in employees. Conflicts swept under the rug.

        Advice to Management

        Seek management and conflict resolution training

        I have been working at Brown County Wisconsin full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Time off, hours. The crew is a group. Nice equipment

        Cons

        Terrible management, constant messing with employees. What is good for some, is t good for others. They tell you that your replaceable.

        Advice to Management

        Take care of your employees. It doesn't matter that it is a municipality, the employees still bed to be treated with respect.

          I worked at Brown County Wisconsin (Less than a year)

          I think it is managed quite well.
