    Pros

    Overall my experience with Sarasota County was positive. The managers were understanding and would work with you if challenges arrived.

    Cons

    It seemed like we were always understaffed. As soon as a role was filled, someone else would leave.

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits and time off.

    Cons

    The department manager lacks management skills. She puts on a good show in front of those outside of the department but behind closed doors, she manages with threats and scare tactics. If she makes a mistake, her staff take the blame. She has a track record of using staff to cover for her mistakes.
