SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CAJuly 15, 2017
This is a wonderful place to work with genuine leadership. Job security is inherently great, but the small size of the organization limits the ability to advance in position. Low-turnover rate as most employees have been happily employed for an average of 12 years.

Working at the Courthouse was very exciting and it was a great place to work with. The people I worked with were like family, everyone looked out for each other and was always there to help out. The work was always something different. I left there to try a new adventure in New York City.

They prefer desk time over productivity
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 30, 2016
In the IT Dept, your typical day would start with daily, morning, staff meetings where you will discuss, ad nauseam, the minutia of every problem to your micro manager. From there you should be prepared to be "visible" at all times via internal social media app. Should you need to leave your desk for any reason, it is imperative that you reflect your "status" on said social media app. "Telework", if allowed, is only one day per pay period and may only be done from your residence. Timekeeping is done through an internally created time clock. Your time is tracked down to the exact minute.

The hardest part of the job: Waking up knowing that it was ahead.
The most enjoyable part: Punching the time clock at day's end.
Pros
The benefits package is the only pro.
Cons
Micro-managers, time clock, daily meetings, weekly status reports, desk time, favoritism, lack of transparency, horrid office culture, backwards thinking policy makers.

Working with the Sheriffs department personalized my work in unexpected positive ways
Case Administrator (Current Employee) –  Rockford, ILSeptember 10, 2015
My work as program coordinator gave me a great sense of accomplishment. Helping individuals with personal goals, anger management, education, drug treatment and spiritual exploration were all a part of the daily work as coordinator. What I learned from this job is that no matter of economic status there are improvements to be made by all to contribute to the fabric our cities, states and the country. The hardest part of my job was having to walk away from it.
Pros
Very supportive co-workers. Orderly professional work environment.
Cons
Lack of funding
