    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, good benefits. On site medical clinic. Secure work environment

    Cons

    Too many organizational layers. No pay for performance incentives. Compensation way under market. Promotion process is not transparent and is not ethical at the senior manager & up level.

    Advice to Management

    Newly created business line administrators positons are adding to organizational logjam. Seek out leadership talent from the private sector not from within the organization unless they have had private sector experience.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work environment--you set your own schedule and have independent decision making ability. About half the positions are internal promotions so great opportunity to grow. Opportunities to learn new skills. Great colleagues. Top management is creative and innovative

    Cons

    It's a government agency so change is hard. Middle management is not as good.

    Advice to Management

    A subject matter expert is not necessarily a good supervisor
