    Pros

    other than having a paycheck- absolutely none

    Cons

    If you're educated or a professional DO NOT work here. They don't value education, most people have been doing the same thing wrong for 20 years and, shockingly, they can't figure out why nothing works, no progress is made and elected officials keep ending up in jail. The organizational culture is insane, people don't stay home when they're sick, everyone will stab you in the back in order to attempt to keep their own jobs. And the management- ha! What a joke. People that have no clue what leadership means! Blind leading the blind. And further- there are two different employee handbooks- one for civil servants and one for all the other lowly people. If you're not lucky enough to have civil servant status then those that do will lord it over you and threaten your job whenever they feel like it- thus the organizational culture that's created is one of segregated disparity. This place appears to have potential but it doesn't.

    Advice to Management

    Please retire and hire people that have a education and know what they're doing.

    Pros

    Insurance quality of work rapport with employees location

    Cons

    Schedules. Time constraints. Budget constraints cut back in benefits instability

    Advice to Management

    Offer stability in jobs. Try to increase benefits such as tuition reimbursement and holidays

    Pros

    State retirement system, acceptable benefits. There are some good employees who are seldom recognized or allowed to do the jobs they were hired to do.

    Cons

    Terrible working conditions, rampant nepotism, elected leadership is clueless and micromanages departments. There are many dissatisfied employees who are afraid to speak out for fear they may be fired from their jobs. Employees who are decent and hardworking are seldom recognized and overshadowed by those who are inept and politically connected. It is almost impossible to hold people accountable, especially if they are "friends" with one of the politicans. Budgets are designed to provide the most minimal service possible while sustaining a functioning organization.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job.
