A good job for a college student

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The scheduling was very flexible and it pays above average compared to other jobs at the experience level. However, there doesn't appear to be any room for advancement and there's minimal interaction with other employees.

Good supportive work environment

Positive and Supportive Work Environment

Working for Loudoun County has been the best experience I’ve had so far in my career. My department really encourages work/life balance and reminds us to take breaks. The nature of the work is often really stressful and challenging but the role itself is very flexible. I’ve never felt patronized or micromanaged, only encouraged and supported as a professional. You won’t get rich working for the county but the pay is competitive and the benefits are really really good. Its the first job I can see myself staying at long-term.

Ok for licensure

Difficult work life balance due to multiple evenings expected, unannounced coverage needed for other departments, and stress from patients. First line supervisors are supportive.

Pros

Stability

Cons

Stress, long hours, pay

Lots of pressure with lots of opportunity

You will work extremely hard at Loudoun but the experience gained will be worth it. If you can survive the stress of nonstop work you can make a great career at Loudoun or take your experience somewhere else.

Pros

Good benefits and pay.

Cons

Pressure

Micromanaged and overworked

Loudoun County expects you to do the job of 5 people in a regular 8 hour day. The job you are hired for is only one facet of the job you will actually be doing. You are expected to be on the phone the entire day with customer's and still get a multitude of other tasks done. From emails, payments, mail sorting, correspondence, scanning, copying, faxing, and bookkeeping. You are not allowed to be in the office after public hours when the phones are off so you can't finish your work for the day to be able to start fresh the next day. The parking garage is overcrowded and only has one extremely slow elevator that isn't worth waiting for and is not connected to the government building so you have to walk through the courtyard rain or shine. Management is a mess. Nobody knows exactly who's responsibility somethings are and they throw you in the deep end and give you a lot of responsibility but then nitpick everything you do after the fact saying it wasn't done exactly right. Getting time off is a hassle even when you've earned paid time off or sick leave they often deny it because someone else is out of the office or it's to close to deadline. Even for doctors visits and emergencies with family members. I enjoyed working in downtown Leesburg with lots things to do on lunch and after work. I also enjoyed the pay scale.

Salaries are not compatible to living in Loudoun County

The work conditions are clean and comfortable. Level or trust and support from supervisors varies greatly. Confidentiality with HR is weak at best. Salaries are fixed and not suitable to living in the county you are working within,

Run from ICT

Loudoun County offers great benefits and majority of the staff are great. However, one branch within the county is very toxic and has a high turnover. If you have an opportunity to join ICT or PATH, DO NOT!!! This program loses 50% of their staff every other year due to management. Avoid ICT within Loudoun County if you can.

The place is getting better, it has been going under some changes and peoples attitudes have gotten a lot better. We just received another raise this year.

Very Aged and Outdated Government Organization

For being one of the highest median incomes in the USA, you would never know it how the government interacts. Worked for an elected official, it impressed with the work ethic displayed and how the staff was treated. There were many times that a dress code and an image were more important. The culture was rigid and there was no flexibility to re-imagine processes or try new ideas (even a flex work schedule). The benefits of Loudoun County do NOT compare with private industry! Recommend to RUN from working here! If you decide to work here, ask what the specific office’s turnover rate has been over the last 12 months (especially when working for an elected official). Not impressed at all!

Hostile environmemt, DFS management does not care about you, will not care about you. Upper management put unrealistic expectations. Under staffed

These reviews are misleading. People that gave positive reviews do not work for Family Services they work for Loudoun schools. People that work serving the public are completely unappreciated, the work load per worker is excessive, unrealistic expectations., retaliation. . management
