Overall place of business was satisfactory. Management at times was chaotic. The business practices were sound and viable. Co-workers were mostly professional with different levels of experience. Culture was good and at times then became disenchanting Job security was stable but became hard as the economy improved.
Very good place to work. Benefits and pay are excellent. Many things to do during lunch hour in downtown Raleigh. Great area restaurants and local farmers market nearby. Great work environment. Minimal micro managing. Lots of opportunity for advancement.
Good pay, good atmosphere.
Had to pay for parking downtown and walk several blocks to get to the courthouse.

Great people to work with, great benefits a good career job. You will learn alot but i takes 1 to 2 years to feel comfortable with doing the job. There is not much advancement at this time could change.
No micro managment
Management needs to look more at big picture when making court wide decisions
Great government agency to work for; Management respectful and friendly.

Case Administrator/Intake Clerk (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – August 28, 2017
Hands down, best job I ever had. The management was great a training, work load was challenging, yet managable. To succeed at USBC, you must have a service-minded personality and be able to put others first. Very team-oriented.
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – July 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.
Case Administrator (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – April 26, 2017
I was employed with the Court System for 28 years. I had the pleasure of working with 4 different Federal Court Judges. The experience and education I gained by working within this system far outweighs any other employment.
Pride in working with such an elite organization, Salary and benefits
Facilities coordinator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 21, 2017
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.
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 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.
The benefits package is the only pro.
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, IL – September 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.
Very supportive co-workers. Orderly professional work environment.
