    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mercer County (New Jersey) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close to home (just over one mile away). Full medical and dental insurance coverage. Paid holidays, vacation, sick days, and personal days.

    Cons

    Parking is terrible. You either have to take a bus or walk five blocks. Not ideal if you have to leave early or if the weather is bad. No overtime pay. The public can be very trying.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your employees and provide paid overtime.

    Pros

    Lots of overtime good benifits

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism people are not treated fairly based on their skills only on who they know which is a huge problem

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen more to the employees who work there instead of the people who don't have a clue as to what to doing and watch TV monitors all day without ever doing the job himself

    Pros

    My experience was a great one. If I had not moved away, I would still be employed with them. The atmosphere was a pleasant one and I could count on the people to be working toward the same goals i was.

    Cons

    I would have liked for the payment to be a little more flexible. The process for requesting time off was tedious

    Advice to Management

    I think management was competent to a point but I think a little more interaction with the staff would have been great

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Probably typical for a government job, but very good for someone who needs health insurance. Generous leave package 2 weeks vacation, plenty of sick-time.
    Most of the work is very low pressure. It's a great place if you have limited ambition and are not looking to get ahead. You can basically just keep showing up for 25 years and retire with health insurance.

    Cons

    Pay is low relative to the private sector. Some of the co-workers are in jobs protected by union or civil service rules and they do very little work. There is limited advancement potential.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of you are asleep on the job, literally.
