    I worked at Orange County Government, Florida full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The staff at the OCCC are wonderful and really know their stuff. Clients will not have a better experience at any other Convention Center.

    Cons

    Executive staff and Management is a major challenge. Regretfully most of them are hormonal and do not know how to manage people. There is a lot of favoritism and Heaven forbid if you don't play their games. The OCCC has become a very negative place to work - it's very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Start noticing the great staff that works there! Have the Executives take a Management 101 course and be sure they follow it.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Orange County Government, Florida full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady work, no layoffs. Overtime becomes available somewhat commonly. Department started a program entitled Future Correctional Leaders, so they are somewhat willing to invest in their staff.

    Cons

    NOT associated with the Orange County Sheriff so becoming a Deputy Sheriff requires an outside application. Because we're not associated with the Sheriff, there is a lack of respect, lack of professionalism, less pay, less opportunities to promote or transfer and it seems that the inmates have more rights then the officers. Pacifying the inmates is a tragic commonplace at OCCD. "What can I do to get you to comply with my order Sir?" is the administrations idea of maintaining order. Misconduct is prevalent along with the constant pettiness. "The Corrections Officer will retreat, if possible" is too widely used in the department's policies. 12 hour shifts often cause your personal/family life to suffer. I've frequently looked around at other department's pay and have found the pay of OCCD officers is among the lowest in the area. Smaller jails and larger jails pay their officers more than OCCD. Seminole, Osceola, Polk, Hillsborough, and Pinellas pay their Detention Deputies/Corrections Officers more than OCCD.

    Advice to Management

    Work to raise morale. You workers have been "hammered down" with so much change and restrictions. Listen to your subordinates! Make yourself seen. Show your support for the officers on the front line. Fight for your officers' rights, pay, benefits and for what's right and best for the department.
