It was a nice job to have for the time. Mind your own business and get your job done. It wasn't really my type of environment, too much politics and dread.

A place to work with good benefits.
License Inspector (Current Employee), Decatur, GAJune 5, 2014
Pros: work monday-friday from 8:30am-5pm, one hour lunch, off and paid major holidays, walking distance to marta station, covered employee parking
Cons: places to eat in the area are a little pricey.
A typical day at work includes telephone and in-person customer service; analyzing and reviewing reports for field inspection and enforcement. Immediate management is not good-not people oriented. My co-workers make the day. The hardest part of the job is working under someone who incompetent and refuses to listen to and use the expertise of its staff. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to meet and inteact with people from all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

Fast Paced
Human Resource Manager (Current Employee), Decatur, GAMay 27, 2014
Cons: compensation, management, training opportunites, work-life balance
DeKalb County is a fast-paced environment that is ever-changing. The ability to adapt fast is key depending upon the department. There are some chance for promotion, however politics are always involved in the decision making process. There is little work-life balance and majority of the employees are paid well under the market.

Corrupted and depressing
DeKalb County Employee (Current Employee), Decatur, GeorgiaSeptember 14, 2013
Pros: they say "its" a job
Cons: working there
If you want to work in a place that have a management team that has no morals or no idea how to manage, then you will be in the right place. Top down management, my way or the highway mentality, employees have to be "babby sit"? Please look else where for employment. Lets back up some facts. The employees were given furloughs while upper management gave themselves salary wages. Most recent raise for lower employees took over a half a decade and that was for the lowest paid employees. Top and middle managers were give raises while telling lower employees the county can not afford raises. There is a interim CEO, CFO, COO ect... Concern Citizens are trying to form there own cities because there is no confidence in the managment today.
