    Confusing

    Mental Health Clinician (Former Employee) Placerville, CA

    ProsLocation and good clinical peers. There is a new CEO and that may help with leadership.

    ConsManagement has historically lacked direction and makes "shoot from the hip" decisions, still in transition, poor communication and support of line staff. Much upheaval.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Government Run Amock

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Placerville, CA

    ProsWell, if you live in the area, they occasionally have jobs

    ConsEverybody is either a relative or married to somebody else who works there. People get their kids jobs and people stay there for decades sucking off the taxpayers...without providing any benefit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI get that a lot of the department heads and other leaders are elected, but the politics really gets in the way of doing anything for the county

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top heavy management that does not support staff adequately

    Social Worker (Former Employee) South Lake Tahoe, CA

    ProsBenefits package, lived in beautiful south Lake Tahoe, gained legal experience

    ConsFavoritism, Constant fear of job loss due to decreased funding, cuts made to administrative support staff while managers were promoted, decisions about the care of foster children made driven by cost, did not adequately meet needs of clients or staff in daily operation and court ordered services

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with more courtesy and respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
