    I have been working at Hamilton County, OH full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When you work for Hamilton County, you're working alongside many great people, providing vital services to our community. The benefits are competitive, and participating in the OPERS retirement system is a great benefit.

    Raises were not in the budget for several years, which impacted career earnings for employees.

    I worked at Hamilton County, OH part-time

    Pros

    This is a seasonal job with flexible hours. The leaders are well-organized and understanding. The co-workers are wonderful. It feels good to be working for something that betters our civic involvement.

    Cons

    This is a seasonal job and not something for someone who needs year round work. The training sessions are fast-paced. People who do not have experience or skill as instructors would not be well-suited to this job.

    Pros

    This is great place to work. Everyone is like family. Pay and benefits are great. They are also a part of the OPERS retirement, which is great.

    Cons

    The office is overseen by an elected board. Each board member is different, some are better than the others. It is a small office and super specialized, there is no room to grow.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Hamilton County, OH full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits health insurance holiday pay

    Cons

    Supervisor, not concerned with employees, look for ways to save money, at employees expense (budgets with no raise)

    Advice to Management

    Consider the rate of pay, compared to private sector, and inflation, not padding your own budget

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Hamilton County, OH full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are great including insurance, leave and flexible work schedule. Great place to work and I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

    Cons

    Being a public sector company, the growth opportunities are limited. If the county could work on improving this area, it could be one of the best employers in the county.

    Advice to Management

    My advise to management would be to see how they could develop a growth track for all groups and areas so employees can look forward to enhancing their careers.

    I have been working at Hamilton County, OH full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security in most departments. Low stress atmosphere in many departments. Reasonably good benefits (would call them average). Things were much better here 10 years ago..

    Cons

    No raises or bonuses in years. County commissioners do not care about county employees. HR is like an attorney covering the county's rear, also doesn't seem to have the employees interest in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation and/or benefits before all of the skilled employees get out.

    I have been working at Hamilton County, OH full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The hours are good and there's job security once you get in.

    Cons

    Insurance used to be great, now it's not. There used to be cost of living raises and occasional performance raises, now there aren't.
