Pros

Steady employment and excellent benefits including medical, dental, vision and a pension plan (for vested employees after 7 years) and traditional retirement plan

Cons

Like most government organizations, there is a certain amount of bureaucracy/ stagnation. By and large, though, this is a good employer.

Advice to Management

I have been impressed with the level of communication during a challenging budget year. Thank you for preserving people's jobs whenever possible.

    I have been working at Lake County (Illinois) full-time

    Pros

    The State's Attorney is progressive and personable. Everyone seems to like him and people are happy overall.

    Cons

    Because it's a good place to work many people stay until they can't afford to any longer-which makes it harder to get to the higher divisions and the most challenging work and the higher pay. If no one above you leaves you're stuck with 2-3% pay increases per year. After a while that's just not doable becsuse it's really expensive to live in Lake county and the costs go up by more than that amount each year.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate ways to use funds to pay more in salaries. Talk more regularly with employees about their ideas for general improvements.

    Pros

    Colleagues; Dedicated staff; Programs available for patients/clients

    Cons

    Middle management; lack of integration amongst programs; paid time off

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with more respect; engage staff in problem solving instead of dictating decisions made without staff input. Management is missing a lot of opportunities to engage staff and strengthen loyalty as well as retention.
