bad morale in some departments

Program Assistant (Current Employee)
Redding, CA

I have been working at Shasta County full-time for more than a year

ProsA paycheck with benefits is great

ConsOne of my first required county wide trainings was an eye opener as coworkers from various departments shared their disgust with disrespectful managers. My own manager was not remotely qualified for her job lacking the education and skills to do quality work. She micromanaged her staff into quitting, or hating their work. She got promoted for that and this seems to be how the county rewards arrogance and incompetence. Arrogance is the operative word when dealing with management.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and realize there is a morale issue that could be improved if you provided any indication that you cared for your staff's career and well-being

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Another Government Clone

Cog In the Wheel (Current Employee)
Redding, CA

I have been working at Shasta County full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBeing a government job its a secure postion and there is opportunity for advancement if you fit in and know what you are doing.

ConsVery Clicky, government is adverse to change and runs at a snails pace which makes innovation and change very difficult. Government is risk-adverse and employees are afraid of making mistake and there is alot of CYA going on or blaming somone else. Morale is not very good.

Advice to Senior ManagementWow! Where do I start....Communication is not very good between upper management and those below so they need to fix that. Also Managment should help with morale bring inspiration to the work place tell people they are doing a good job make it a place where people want to go to work not just some 9 to 5 job where you collect a paycheck. Where there is a lack of vision the people perish. Alot of employees are adverse to taking the lead or promoting a new idea as that is not enouraged within managment. There is alot of dead weight in the lower job functions as well but thats another question.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
