If you don't fit in right away you're as good as gone. Management doesn't appreciate you. Old systems, always afraid to do something new. You are accused of things you don't do and penalized for them. Not a good place to work. Lots of turnover.
HS Case Manager (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – June 6, 2018
I did not have a good experience working at Wake County. I found that the “rules” are not applied equally to all employees. Human Resources are not there for the employees they usually protect the supervisors, trainers, and managers. Supervisors have gotten away with having DUIs and criminal charges yet, they have shown me that they are not willing to make adjustments for certain caseworkers when it comes to minor non criminal situations. IT IS ALL A POPULARITY CONTEST.
Decent pay and benefits
Not enough opportunity for advancement, Terrible Management
Management is a disaster. Poor planning, culture of abuse and driving people down. No leadership or management skills at even a base level. Bring issue forward and you were ignored. Week later the presented the same issue as something they discovered and you failed to address. Could not be happier to be out of that toxic environment. Other department I am sure are much better. BOE is a train wreck.
very nice place to work must be a people person in order to work with the public because people have different attitudes and you have to understand how to work with that. overall the employees were nice
Wake County offers great benefits, including Medical/Dental/Vision, 401K and paid time off. It does not, however offer great compensation. It is very difficult to move to a different position within Wake County.
Working for Wake county, one must be able to handle very fast working pace, be able to communicate well, be organized and be a multitasker. The work place culture is a mixture of a little bit of everything.
