    Former Employee - Social Worker in San Luis Obispo, CA

    I worked at San Luis Obispo County, California full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay was good, plenty of opportunities for OT, a lot of training and educational opportunities.

    Cons

    The deputy director Tracy Schiro (Buckingham) and head of HR for DSS Natalie Walters are completely insane. They run the place by fear. There are AMAZING social workers that do amazing work in the agency. I don't know one supervisor or regional manager that didn't do terrific work and did not support those they managed. They offered constructive criticism when needed, education and encouragement. However, it is on an almost monthly basis to have a supervisor, regional manager, or social worker will be moved, demoted, put on leave or written up. Every employee I know in the agency dislikes Tracy and Natalie and the way they treat employees and run things. A lot of people leave the agency, and those who stay do it because of the money or fear of change. It is a very sad situation and the only way it will change is if management is held accountable for the way they run things. I was blessed because I never got in their line of fire, but I saw too many great individuals I looked up to who did things the best they could get blasted for things often out of their control. I could not stand for it anymore and found another place of employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like you would like to be treated. Smile. Encourage others instead of questioning and putting them down. Be moral and someone people look up to instead of fearing. Work with people and understand their position instead of writing them up because you only see things from your perspective which is immoral and misguided. Understand the social workers and supervisors on the front line can bring a lot more to understanding situations than you.
