    I worked at Clark County Las Vegas, Nevada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn how courts function from behind the bench. My judge was a wonderful mentor.

    Cons

    It's typically a one-year gig, so by the time you feel like you really have your feet underneath you, it is time to start looking for the next job.

    Pros

    Good health benefits. Generally supportive, helpful work environment. I had an excellent boss (each judge is different, but several of them are like mine, very supportive of their staff and friendly to work with). It's a big building, so there is often some kind of celebration going on (holidays, retirement parties, etc.), which means free food :)

    Cons

    Working for the county courts is stressful by its nature because it deals with deadlines, difficult cases, lawyers, and big workloads. This alone is tough, but it also means coworkers will sometimes be stressed out and you have to deal with them, too. The clerks are part of a union and report to their supervisors (not part of the judicial staff), which is kind of an awkward arrangement sometimes because the judge's goals and the supervisors' goals don't always align. Not all departments have a team that works well together.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the clerks' relationship to the judicial staff. When a clerk becomes part of a judicial team, give them more rein to follow the judge's guidelines. Also, give the court clerks a break. Excessive oversight (like requiring clerks to fill out late slips when they are two minutes late) seems to cramp their ability to be effective (and content) in the workplace, and this affects their coworkers, too.

    I have been working at Clark County Las Vegas, Nevada full-time

    Pros

    Very good benefits, lax work environment. You receive an annual pay increase regardless of performance and sometimes a cost of living increase.

    Cons

    Very slow to change and bureaucratic. Change usually only happens because of a new law or a elected official complains. Not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Clark County Las Vegas, Nevada (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The location. It is the entertainment capitol of the world; the weather is dry and healthy, you can keep anonymous and live in peace

    Cons

    It is not a good place to raise your children. Too many distractions that may allure young adults
    away from their studies and toward unhealthy sinful activities.

    Advice to Management

    Don't relay too much on the CV or what you may find during an internet "look up". Frequently a perfectly sound and capable employee is slandered by competitors and you may be prompted to find somebody else. If you like the resume schedule a live interview as soon as possible.
