Stressful and difficult to keep up
Deputy Clerk Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAJuly 16, 2018
A typical day at work started with everyone chatting for at least an hour and then people complaining non-stop about how much work they had. As a supervisor, I was required to pick up the slack and not take breaks or lunches. It was unnecessarily stressful and not there was never enough people to cover the work.
Pros
Paid vacation and sick time off, healthcare
Cons
Not enough people, too much work, customers were always angry

Extremely stressful with them expecting you to fail
Communications Officer (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAMarch 6, 2018
I would not recommend working here. It is extremely stressful and the people you work with are back stabbers and if they don't like you you will fail.

Nice steady employment
Tradesman III (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAFebruary 24, 2018
Whether your experience at Gwinnett County is good or not depends on your drive and ambition. If you do not have any, your fine. If you do, there is not much room for advancement unless someone retires or dies. The mood there is to be complacent in your role and be grateful for your position. To a certain degree I understand this, if all the pieces are in place, things are efficient and productive. Someone promoted or changing roles is disruptive with new hires and new training needed. The company wants smoothness and reliability. Most workers want to learn and climb the corporate ladder. So, there is the conundrum. You have to ask yourself, "What type of person are you?" It has been my experience, being there 15 years, that this is a county wide policy and not subject to change per department.
Pros
Lots of training available.
Cons
no way of utilizing the new training, stuck.

Not a good place to work. The Morale is terrible
Economic Support Specialist Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAFebruary 7, 2018
It used to be a great place to work but now its a very stressful and hostile environment. My doctor recommends me finding another job immediately. This company do not care about their employees, the children of the employees and they do not care about the customers and they give terrible customer service.
Pros
Great workers, helping the customers
Cons
Rude management, low morale, always feel like your job is treatened
