    I have been working at Franklin County, Ohio full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, safe environment, stable work-life balance. There are a lot of benefits to working for the government, but those three take the cake.

    Cons

    There is no room whatsoever for upward mobility. The person ahead of you is likely there because they waited 15 years to get to that spot so that they could bide their time for another 15 years until it's your turn. Very hard to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Create more jobs, or more reasons to stay in Franklin County, and in the county's employ. Else, you'll lose a lot of good employees.
