    Not surprisingly, it is Government afterall, the environment is is heavily political, especially in management.

    Director (Former Employee)
    Thousand Oaks, CA

    ProsFor the most part the people are great, hardworking with the best interest at heart to do good work for the clients served.

    ConsEndless meetings with very little productivity overall. Often loses sight of who they serve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees, they really are smart people. Set up a structured, effective and confidential feedback process and take action on some very good ideas. Stop making decisions in a closet.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pay is minimal but at least the offices are nice

    Fiscal Assistant (Current Employee)
    Ventura, CA

    Prosgood program, nice offices/grounds, nice wellness perks for employees

    ConsVery rigid structure, if you show willingness to help solve an issue affecting you which is not based in your department it becomes very bureaucratic and hierarchical; Extremely low pay until you have at least 10 years invested; vacation package worse than some private industry

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    IT Services at the County provides a stable 9-5 environment, though morale issues and a lack of direction are detrimenta

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Ventura, CA

    ProsOvertime is optional and generally frowned upon. The benefits are good and the pay is OK. If you excel then you will eventually grow professionally and personally.

    ConsJob growth is somewhat slow due to nobody ever leaving and the inability to open new positions. Dead weight is all around due to the union preventing layoffs of inefficient workers. Senior management does not effectively communicate down or up, causing a negative view throughout the county and with it's own employees. Very little efforts are put forth to centralize IT across the county, resulting in a lose standards, and competiion with other county agencies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEffective communication and sharing strategic initiatives in a more meaningful way would help. Ensure the viability of IT Services through centralization across the County.
