    I worked at Cobb County Government full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Cobb County. The schedule was regular and working with the public is something that I do well.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great but you are compensated in really good benefits. They rarely get rid of dead weight workers- this is a part of most government work.

    Pros

    The location is amazing and the people are wonderful. The holidays are great as well.

    As government jobs come this one really is better than most but of course working for the government is not going ot pay as much as it could.

    I have been working at Cobb County Government full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job security, medical insurance, dental insurance, optional additional vision & life insurance, 457 deferred comp in lieu of 401k

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement - you can move forward when the person ahead of you does or they retire, upper level advancement is based on who you already know - not your qualifications, things are the way they are because that is how it's always been - when changes are made it may be counter-productive.

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating your employees more - it will help increase morale which will increase worker productivity, award promotions based on qualifications - not on who you know, don't be afraid to stand up for your people when necessary
