I am a volunteer working to relaunch my career after taking a break to raise a family. The Health and Family Services has a wonderdul volunteer program that provides excellent working experience, training opportunities and as well as a wonderful referral source.

Indifferent Rater
Early Career

Dominant masculine culture, disengaged leadership on the issues related to females. No incentives (poor lactation accommodations, no gym, difficulty to access child care within the agency)

Mid-Level

Very old school.

In a female dominated industry (child care) male employees were proved and noticed more frequently, thus advancing on the career ladder much faster.

Early Career

It's still pretty much a good old boys' work environment - a fair amount of favoritism - golfing buddies - that kind of thing. The upside is the flexible work environment (for the most part). Fairfax County is a leader in telework. Unfortunately they did away with pay for performance so top performers don't get differentiated pay to recognize their level of effort and results. Even though Virginia is a right to work state, the employee "union" was successful in getting the County's pay system changed to pay those on the lower end of the scale more. Even then, budget shortfalls keep pay increases low and no raises at all in some years. Budget cuts have also affected training. Despite this, there are many dedicated hardworking people in County government who are great to work with.
