    I worked at Dallas County full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The stability of your position, whatever it might be is constant and does not change. Job security. Great people to work with, who share the same goals.

    Cons

    There is little chance for advancement even if you are qualified. There is a bit of favortism within departments. You will be noticed for your mistakes but not accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Managers vary in each department and there should be more structure in work habits when dealing with employees. Some of them micromanage and do more harm than good.

  8. "Working for the government is always great because you have job security."

    Pros

    The DSO is a good steady job. Set hours. A very good benefits and retirement package. It's a Civil Service job, so there are very good employee protections in place.

    Cons

    There is absolutely NO professional development of any kind whatsoever. Leadership is severely lacking.
