    I worked at Dallas County full-time

    Pros

    NONE!! Don't even deserve one star!!!

    Cons

    Grants management is TERRIBLE! There isn't any training, only to look at the previous report and figure it out. Top management is terrible so of course supervisors are the same. Supervisors are sneaky and only out for their personal gain. Benefits are terrible for new employees. Micromanagement style. If they do not like you, they will pick on everything you do to force you to leave or find a way to fire you. Top management doesn't care what goes on or how people are treated. Supervisors do what they please and enforce rules of their choosing and to whom they choose. They fire people who don't deserve it and keep those who do. Management hates answering questions so they tell you to ask your lead or another employee. Worst place I've ever worked. I will tell anyone to run as fast as you can.

    Advice to Management

    Leave, replace current management, learn how to be a manager!

    Pros

    The commute to the office was good compared to an hour or more it was 20 minutes, 35 with traffic. The work hours were flexible. Nice mix of employees

    Cons

    Downtown parking was a for sure con. In addition the pay was lower than my prior positions

    Advice to Management

    The salaries will make it tough to attract and keep talent. Add creative ways to make work life balance more platitible like offering volunteer time off.
