    I worked at Collin County, TX as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, decent starting salary for the DA's Office, benefits are great, courthouse is brand new, great hours

    Cons

    The courthouse is pretty far north and far from everything in Collin Country, the hiring process is long, and pay could be a little higher

    Advice to Management

    Everything is great, but please increase your salaries to compete with the private sector!

    I have been working at Collin County, TX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Good steady hours. Great benefits. Holiday Pay. Vacation pay. Flexible schedule. The work is not difficult. In the heart of McKinney TX

    Cons

    HR is oblivious to what the elected officials are doing.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to interact more with employees. Make employees feel comfortable with coming to them with concerns about their department.

    I have been working at Collin County, TX full-time

    Pros

    This job is actually very low stress and is completely stable. It can be a lot of fun working with teenage kids. Their personalities are very entertaining at times. The days off are incredible. Best work schedule ever!

    Cons

    The opportunities for advancement are slim. This is the only thing negative that I can think of about this job.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management here are top notch. They are without a doubt, the best bosses that I have ever worked for. That is what makes it hard to leave!

    I have been working at Collin County, TX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people, decently competitive salary, good benefits, and an atmosphere that still feels small town and like it's a big family.

    Cons

    Benefits are managed by the Commissioners Court (like a city council for the county) and having their politics get involved with our jobs on an annual basis gets very old.

    I have been working at Collin County, TX full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. The benefits are by far the best thing about working in the detention center.

    Cons

    The facility is run down. Management makes lots of promises but no follow through.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make promises you can not keep. Give employees trainings to move up if that is their desire

    I worked at Collin County, TX full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of nice people that are capable individuals to do what is right for the citizens. Good PTO, decent medical.

    Cons

    Very low pay for the amount of work that is expected. Pay for Performance (PFP) has not taken out the favoritism in salary increases. Managers play with the numbers to get their favorite employees the necessary increases. HR offers very little training through out the organization. Hard to get HR to respond to emails and phone calls.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to take ownership, invest in employees through training.

    Pros

    Stable organization with good benefits. Good place to get experience and use as a spring board for other things, or stay and enjoy a career there.

    Cons

    Run by a bunch of elected officials (I.e. Politicians). In recent years this has lead to leadership making decisions based on constituent opinion rather than facts, logic and math.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to keep your constituents happy without making employees feel like they are consistently undervalued.
