    I have been working at Orange County Government, Florida full-time

    Pros

    Hard work and initiative is rewarded. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    It's government and so dead weight tends to hang out for too long. Some people get by doing the minimum and even a little less for years. You almost have to do something outrageous that hits the front page for anything serious to happen.

    I worked at Orange County Government, Florida full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You help people. Some coworkers are actually nice

    Cons

    Focused on discipline. New hires are set up for failure. Benefits are horrid. Morale is awful. Even senior employees are quitting. Management blamed the schedule so they change it. People still quit every few days. They blamed lack of pay. Fixed that. People still quitting. The real problem is a lack of support from higher ups, excessive workload, lack of recognition and excessive discipline. Certain people put on a fake show then do everything they can to ruin your life including flat out lying when they know the truth. So much cattiness and cliques
