Great place to work if you love office politics
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Lexington, KYMay 24, 2017
A great place to work, to learn new things. If you apply yourself you can count on a steady career. As with government work taxpayers pay salaries so the economy dictates your raises and to a lesser extent your benefits. I enjoy the ever changing projects and the opportunity to stretch myself.
Pros
Flex time, benefits
Cons
Ever present office politics, which may be a Pro for some

Admin Specialist Senior (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYMarch 28, 2017
Rewarding job with excellent pay and great benefits and lots of potential for growth. There is some politics, however, if you can overlook that you can have an excellent job with great retirement benefits.

Best to start at the lower grades and move up.
Public Service Worker (Current Employee) –  Lexington, KYDecember 19, 2016
The system is messed up on pay. You can wirk in a job grade for years and then someone in a lower pay grade can be hired in making more than you.
HR lets people through that dont meet the requirements of the job posting. This electrician job requires a Masters license, yet they have hired people for this position that dont have it. Public record!!
Id advise to not come here unless your semi retired.
Pros
It has alot of days off
Cons
Benefits are lame

Same as Cincinnati Police
Patrolman (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYSeptember 30, 2015
Working as a Police Officer in Lexington Kentucky is the same as working as a Police Officer in Cincinnati. Both cities have the same type of calls for service and dangers that Police Officers face on a daily bases. The hardest part of working as a officer in Lexington was arresting people I grew up with.
Pros
same as cincinnati police
Cons
dangeroues encounters
