Workplace Safety

Challenging Work

Suggestions for improvement

  • My only feedback would be that HR took complaints more seriously against problem employees. Sweeping things under the rug was a safer options for them.

What I like about the company

My employer showed appreciation for me by constantly checking in and asking how I was doing. They also always kept me up to date if a higher position was available so I could constantly move up.

What I dislike about the company

I would say a negative aspect of working in government is that once you're in, if you choose to become a bad worker, others have to deal with that. It's hard to get people fired or removed, even if they are bad workers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Providing growth opportunities, providing leadership opportunities and an open door policy

What I like about the company

I really like working for the state and county governments, some areas are better than others.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the salaries for positions. We are not paid commensurate to our job.
I also disapprove of some of the decisions made by the fiscal manager. The budget does not seem to mesh with the goals and objectives submitted each year.
