    I have been working at Colorado Judicial Branch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Covered parking and a cheap RTD pass.

    Cons

    Low pay, expensive insurance, micro managers, toxic environment. The work is repetitive, boring and mindless. When advancement opportunities opens, they already have the candidate picked. Management will smile to your face and bury a knife in your back when you turn around.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of the managers and start over.

    The pay for most positions is decent. Insurance is very reasonable and a lot of the lower level employees are nice.

    Very unprofessional with little no training and minimal advancement opportunity. There is an abundance of pointless meetings that are a waste of time for people that have work to do.

    I have been working at Colorado Judicial Branch full-time

    Pros

    Colorado is nationally recognized as the most technologically advanced Judicial Branch due to it's combined case management system and data transfers with other agencies. Because of this, the IT department is charged with pushing the boundaries. We are allowed to work with new technologies and develop new systems to support the courts and probation. Our purpose is very strong, particularly if you have a call to serve the public.

    Cons

    As with any government agency, we are funded by the taxpayers. That leads to no raises when the state budget is weak and increased expectations of how we spend our money. Our leadership continues to fight for these things whenever possible, it is just the reality of being publicly funded.
