    I have been working at Judicial Branch of California full-time (more than 8 years)


    A few visionaries and intelligent leaders remain. Good benefits. The ongoing hops that things may get back on track abc the agency may go back to being able to do the good work it once did.


    Management is so concerned about outside criticism that an agency that once made a significant difference to the Cal court system now operates with its hands tied. In other words, it has become just another bureaucracy. This has led to the loss of many of our best employees. Those who haven't left and aren't waiting for retiirement are interviewing elsewhere and sharing job announcements. Meanwhile, we wait for the final recommendations of an outside agency's year long salary survey to find out how much our salaries will soon be cut - this thanks largely to the Judicial Council Watcher web site and its many powerful but brain dead allies, who exact criticism via the reliance on Star Wars lingo. Expect to have your salary cut if you get a job here. There's also no room for advancement any longer because of the perception that there are too many managers, and the agency's refusal to fight that perception. The salary survey will lead to demotions. Don't be taken in by the high salary advertised and good benefits if you actually want to make a difference and are used to getting reasonable raises (as opposed to forced furloughs and now salary cuts). If you don't take my advice - and the advice of my colleagues - get prepared to join an agency plagued by sycophants and defined most of all by very, very low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a backbone. Protect your employees. Don't become so focused on placating critics that you no longer support autonomy and creativity.
