      A "government job"

      Oct 5, 2017 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      great work/life balance; job security; pension.

      Cons

      Increasing levels of "old school" mentality and political red tape the higher you promote. Will be asked to work "out of glass" but hardly ever promoted to the level of responsibility.

      Bureaucracy and red tape that is found in government can make it difficult to affect change.

      Pros

      Great people (for the most part), interesting work; good benefits

      Cons

      Executive leadership made decisions in a vacuum, without understanding impacts on those implementing the decisions. Too much red tape, even for those inside the County.
