My time working through an internship was definitely different for me. Although it was something new for me, i developed skills to use later on in life.

No feedback and no assistance. Sink or swim job. Put me in a position and provide hardly any information how best to do job. I never talk to management and they never talk to me.

The management are friends and hire and promote their friends. There are a lot of familial relationships at a particular location. There is a serious lack of diversity, especially in management.

Steady work but still catching up to the times. Needs to change pay and management styles before they loose all their good talent to other local companies.

As with most government employers mediocrity is found throughout the workplace. Politics trump all decision making. Those with influence advance and those who earn the ire of elected officials are trashed. The benefits are very good, especially retirement and insurance.

Having a short stay in Corrections I quickly learned this wasn't a career path for me. Working in the jail and around inmates for several months, opened my eyes to a part of society that I've never been exposed to. I sometimes called it an adult day care, grown men that have made a life for themselves by staying in the system.

Travis County is a great place to build a career. Their benefits package is beyond compare. There are many different departments to choose from, each offering a distinct environment. The only downside is the traffic involved with getting to some of the locations.
Pros

Having a career in service in county government working with teams of others serving our neighbors.
I learned so much about law enforcement, probation, the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, appellate procedures, and all things connected with the Texas Judicial System.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with folks who truly care about their community and helping others, whether they be victims or offenders.

The hardest thing about this job is seeing the tragic circumstances that can befall our neighbors.

Although the pay was great the management style was cut throat and watch over your shoulder management style; it was stressful and dreadful going to work each day.

Travis county itself is really good and I'm sure other departments don't suffer as much as our department in security, but no room for career advancement. Days get very repetitive and great deal of politics among the chain of command. Supervisors get bored from time to time and can make unnecessary problems, depending on your supervisor of course. Overall the county has great benefits, good for gaining PTO and sick leave and job security is very concrete.
Pros
Good benefits & don't work holidays.
Cons
Bad job advancement in thesecurity department.

The manager for this department is horrible. Lack of leadership, lack of common sense, lack of intelligence, micro managing. Its a waste of time, you will never move up and never get a reasonable raise for all the hard work you do. The manager always found something to be wrong, and never could see anything right. Even if you did something out of your way, its not noticed by this manager. If you have an idea for a task, she would never use it, unless she thought of it. Horrible!
Pros
free clinic
Cons
no potential to move up or advance
