Government Run Amock

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Placerville, CA

I worked at El Dorado County full-time for more than a year

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

I worked at El Dorado County full-time for more than 5 years

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
