Good place to work
Park Ranger Supervisor (Current Employee), Norristown, PADecember 18, 2014
Good place to work and I wouldn't have worked here for this long if I didn't. I enjoy the challenges and responsibility that I have acquired since I have moved up to management. I plan on retiring from this job.

Much flexibility in work schedule
Accountant (Current Employee), Rockville, MDDecember 17, 2014
Pros: operations are large enough to provide great experience.
Cons: promotion opportunities are limited.
There is great flexibility in the schedule one wants to work. This may be different for employees working specific shifts such as police, firefighters, correction officers, etc...
Compensation and benefit are average, proportionate to education, experience, and skills. There is a good sense of stability and job security as long as the economy is good – more... (like any other employer). Advancement is limited by the level of operation of the department, and because people in local government tend to stay in their jobs until retirement. – less

Incredible Professional Growth and Experience
Interim Wellness Coordinator (Current Employee), Rockville, MDNovember 16, 2014
Each day I coordinate and carry out logistics for both educational and interactive/physical trainings for MCG employees, communicating with HealthCare vendors (United Health Care, Kaiser, CareFirst), and planning for the 2015 Event calendar.

I am still relatively new at this job, but I have learned how to adapt. Being thrown into a job where there – more... is an immediate need for change and improvement, has forced me to make decisions quickly and to trust my gut. While I do not have the answers to everything, I have no fear or hesitation to ask the questions I need answered and solve the problem. Many people are stalled by indecision and fear of looking silly. This job has forced me to adapt and get done what needs to get done. While this has taught me a lot and resulted in tremendous professional growth, it has probably been the toughest part of the job thus far. But from the difficulties comes growth, right?

The most enjoyable part of the day is dealing with the clients. I love maintaining relationships, making sure people have what they need, figuring out what they are looking for, and getting it done. I love the client management aspect of this job. I have quite a bit of experience in event coordination, but I have always loved the interactions between my company and the clients. Receiving feedback and getting them what they need. – less

Love helping good people and putting away bad guys
Police/EMS/Fire Dispatcher (Current Employee), Lower Providence, PAJuly 9, 2014
Pros: short work week, lots of overtime, job security
Cons: no raises in years, short breaks, very stressful
If you like non stop action and days of boredom, then being a dispatcher is for you. I work 12 hour days from two days one week and then five days the next. I have learned not only to multi-task but to handle three sometimes even five things at once without getting anybody killed. As far as management goes, you need to be on location for five years. – more... I have this, however, my bosses have been working here for over 20 years. I love my co-workers! We spend more time here than with our own families. Not everyone gets a long but work place does. The most enjoyable part of my day is saving a life, it doesn't matter if its a good guy or bad guy. Knowing that they can live another day is all that matters. – less

Great Place to work for the summer
Summer Camp Director (Current Employee), Bethesda, MDJuly 8, 2014
A great place to work for the summer. I have learned a lot this summer, from the trainings, management, and the counselors. The camp is based at a school within Montgomery County, which some times had made it difficult, but making friends within the school has helped out a lot!
