It is a great place to work. Helping voters gives you a good feeling.

Travis County
Pretrial Officer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 6, 2017
Travis County is a serious employer who backs up their employees with a strong policy & procedure guideline. Strong respect/playing field from directors and upper-management, they actually treat employees with the equal amount of respect across the board! I can definitely say that this is one of the best of employers I have had to date; they surpass the City of Austin by a long shot. their wages and benefits are very desirable.
Pros
wages, benefits, vacation, flex-time
Cons
nothing

Fleet Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 5, 2017
What a great company to work for. So many good productive employees have reached their goal and retired. Steady work and steady pay to create the perfect work/ life balance. Travis County has made a positive difference in my life and my loved ones lives. It wasn't apperant in the first couple of years. Now after a decade of service, I can see the difference all the benefits have made in my life. Super stable employer with Management that is interested in your growth and advancing your skills. Training is available and provided by the County at no cost to employee. The County reimburses employees for any Certificates that are job related. We have a team atmosphere with professionalism towards the work and tasks. I work with a team of individuals who understand their role, responsibility. My team are dedicated, professional, and I have 100 percent confidence in all tasks they perform for Travis County.
Pros
Positive Team Atmosphere, Secure Work / Life Balance
Cons
Competitive Start Pay, Raises Come Slow After

Medical examiner's office
Forensic Medical Investigator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 23, 2015
This office is very poorly managed, they don't tell you are hired on a trial basis until you move your family to Austin. Then they tell you and begin threatening your job for 3 months and then tell you your not needed. Then your stuck trying to support your family. The staff of investigators are extremely self centered and won't back each other up.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
non existent management, Chief investigator doesn't back her employees
