    Current Employee - Business Applications Manager in San Bernardino, CA

    I have been working at County of San Bernardino full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good retirement plan, time off....Recently one now has to pay the County pick up of retirement. Losing money now. Effectively haven't received a raise in 10 years. Good place to work if you have average to low skills, if you are highly motivated and need a challenge, find a private sector job

    Cons

    Work with unmotivated people. Always do as little as possible. No consequences for the lazy. Impossible to get fired. Great place to go and do nothing. County union is a puppet of County leadership. They have no negotiating power.

    I worked at County of San Bernardino full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, schedule is great, pay is okay.

    Cons

    Customers aren't nice, union does nothing for employees, no pay increases for years at a time. Promotions aren't based on merit. They are based on who they like or who filed the most recent complaint with union threatening to sue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merit based promotions should be exercised. Change unions.
