    I have been working at Carver County Minnesota full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with day in and day out.
    Average pay but above average benefits, pension plan for retirement, no cost single coverage for insurance coverages.
    Work life balance is great and the PTO is above average with 4 weeks starting.
    No traffic in chaska and parking isn't a problem
    Located on many walking trails for lunch time or after work walking / running needs.
    Farmers Market onsite in the summer / fall months on Wednesday's

    The population of the county is going to double in the next 20 years thanks to Hwy 212 so the outlook is great for county employees. Good job security.

    Cons

    It's a family environment so that brings it's challenges but not to many cons to be honest.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and push to go paperless!

    Pros

    flexible, family friendly, good benefits

    Cons

    total reorganization is happening...never know from day to day what your job might consist of. Different philosophy than other local public health departments. Staff moral low due to constant change and low employee recognition or inconsistent recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all staff equally.
    Have a supervisor not a manager...staff needs a clear direction on expections especially in times of constant change.

    I worked at Carver County Minnesota full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits: Insurance, PTO, holidays. Generally, very capable and knowledgeable coworkers.

    Cons

    Perpetual budget constraints. Very conservative board which appropriately reflected the conservative population of the county. However, some citizens are so conservative and have such a poor opinion of local government that interactions with them as a public employee were very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that salary and benefits aren't the only things to keep employees happy and efficient. The tools they need to do their jobs are just as important to maintain effective employees who enjoy their jobs. Continued capital investment in those tools is critical.
