    Pros

    Great retirement benefits, decent pay and health benefits
    Workers take a lot of pride in their work

    Cons

    some abusive and unstable managers that know how to operate just above illegal so HR can't do anything about it.

    If exempt, may work long hours with no compensation
    Depends on the department but many have no opportunity to advance

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of listening to the workers when they complain about management

    I have been working at Tarrant County full-time (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 have never worked the department they're supposed to be in charge of. Decisions that come down the line attest to the fact that the people in charge are completely out of touch with what the average officer really deals with. Recent changes "at the top" have thus far created more problems than they've solved.

    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

    Pros

    Small. Good Benefits. Basic work tasks.

    Cons

    hostile work environment. Since employees are protected under civil service rules this makes some employees feel entitled to not be fired and call people names and act very unprofessional. Management will sit back and not say anything. Employees are not treated equal including workload and work environment. More you work, harder you work and quicker you work means more of others work who are not willing to work.

    Advice to Management

    Equal out workload and delegate. Too many employees not wanting to do their own workload
