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

    Pros

    Within the limitations, a generally secure job and great benefits. Many opportunities to move around laterally in a department and outside a department. Steady step raises but can max out a certain level until a promotion. Raises are not guaranteed and depends on the fiscal situation. Learn to navigate the obstacles there and it will be a great job, even a career.

    Cons

    One cannot simply change the world through government, any government. LAC is a big machine that does not turn quickly and runs over lots of people in the process. Politics sets the agenda so the pursuit of excellence, and other virtues, are looked upon with suspicion, even optional. Definitely not an environment for everyone as compromises galore will exist in terms of performance, quality, innovation, and creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about your own paychecks and more about doing the right thing.

    "Good place to start when you are in your mid-career. Otherwise, working forever to reach their retirement criteria!"

    I worked at Los Angeles County full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good; they give a health insurance allowance on top of your salary pay. Flexible system of using vacation, sick hours, etc. If you work for 25 years of service, you are 100% covered for medical benefits.

    Cons

    Change is very slow. Not everyone does their work. Benefits have decreased!! Much better years before.

    Advice to Management

    Dysfunctional and inexperienced management! They need to be reviewed by the employees themselves, but I don't think this will ever be allowed!
