    Pros

    I like my income and my coworkers. If you have college education you make more money for the same amount of work than the people without college.

    In my job you never know what shift you may work . You might have to work weekends and holidays

    Current Employee - Senior Mental Health Counselor in Sacramento, CA

    I have been working at County of Sacramento full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The county has strong unions and better than average pay rates. There are awesome benefits with thirteen paid holidays in addition to sick leave and vacations. For those in a certain tier, Kaiser is free to the individual employee.

    Cons

    The challenges are similar to most company challenges. Quite often those in high places make policies that affect lower level employees and the policy makers have no clue as to what is happening on a day to day basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more questions of the employees doing the day to day work with the consumers and taxpayers of Sacramento County.
