    I have been working at County of San Diego full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair management, eagerness to stay current with and follow all labor laws. The agency is transperant starting with the Executive Office. There's an open-door policy on all management levels. I have had very few complaints during my long career here here.

    Cons

    As of this writing, the court's is struggling with their budgetary constraints; among them, reduction of workforce and relocation/closure of some court offices. When there are layoffs (this is either the 2nd or 3rd round in the last five years or so), the first to go are generally the newest employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for the great job you're doing under difficult circumstances.

    Offer multiple sites to employees whom were transferred due to budget issues and not given a chance to change to another unit if not happy.

    Pros

    Help develop good working traits and practice. Very professional. Builds leadership. Good co-workers that lead to friendships.

    Cons

    Need connections. Family members get other family members jobs which takes up spots for actual good workers that are competent. No real morale booster. Cheap when it comes to taking care of employees.
