I have been working at Sarasota County Government full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Benefits (although more and more are being taken away)

Cons

Dealing with forever shifting processes.
Dealing with external customers that think they own you (employ us:yes - own us:NO).
Pressure to constantly manage more responsibilities beyond expertise and then blame them when things go wrong.
Finger pointing
Unequal effort across business centers

Advice to Management

Outsource procurement
Either cut programs and services or increase staff.
Cut out money wasting ventures and either reduce taxes or add staff.

    I worked at Sarasota County Government as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and good pay for the Sarasota area. Good management, and for the most part, competent and friendly employees.

    Cons

    A few bad apples tarnish what would otherwise be an excellent place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and eliminate the bad apples and replace them with higher caliber employees.
