Teacher (Former Employee) –  Largo, FLMarch 12, 2017
May have room for advancement for the hardcore power seekers, but comes at the expense of others and you may end up teaching in a location that is not preferable nor desirable

A multi-faceted clerical position in a fast paced, critical office.
Information Clerk/file clerk (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLDecember 14, 2016
The typical day was seemingly very brief due to the volume of the incoming material into the office that had to be processed. The emphasis was on accuracy rather than speed. This was a mandate of management, who were very professional. I learned the value of communication and cooperation with my co-workers. The hardest part was occasionally being unable to finish a project due to time and the most enjoyable part was the interaction of fellow employees and the public.
Pros
A short commute.
Cons
An inability to be introduced to all facets of the office.

Pros
Good enviroment.
Cons
No advancement, Age & Health restricted.

Customer Information Specialist I (Current Employee) –  FloridaSeptember 16, 2015
Great company, A lot of opportunity to grow great people there. You learn a lot. Got to go out for lunch on peoples' birthdays. Whoever's birthday it was got to choose where they wanted to go. Conference production is a fast-paced environment and if you are not the type of individual that thrives off of results and aren't intrinsically motivated to be successful this may not be the place for you.

Dipolar Environment
IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJanuary 23, 2014
Pinellas County's primary provider of IT services is BTS. BTS is comprised of two separate entities, the Application Support team (Programmers, QA, Systems Admin, Mainframe) and the Infrastructure team (Servers, Desktops, OS, etc). These two groups were at one time completely separate and were merged during a layoff environment. The management and workplace culture between the two teams are complete opposites.

The Application Support team is led by a diverse management group which operates ethically and respectfully. Consequently, the work environment is productive, efficient, and team oriented. This team is restricted from professional growth by the Infrastructure team.

The Infrastructure team is led by an all white, all male, all republican management group. This group does not operate ethically or respectfully. The work environment is one of constant infighting, blame placement, and power play. Coworkers are more focused on avoiding blame and preventing others from learning their job.
