      I have been working at Tarrant County full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Great retirement plan if you can vest, decent (but expensive) health care, job security once you're covered under civil service, decent pay

      Cons

      The inmates have more freedom and get more respect than the officers. Inmates, the public, and many coworkers are openly hostile. Morale is horrible, turnover is high.Terrible work conditions and bad supervision have driven out a lot of people. Dangerously understaffed. The "good ole boy" system is very much in evidence. Decisions are reactive, not proactive. Employee concerns are frequently disregarded. Some supervisors...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to employees. Stop making knee-jerk reactions. Don't allow personal grudges to affect treatment of certain employees. Make more effort to retain good employees, so the rest aren't put in jeopardy by being short-handed
