    Former Employee - Mental Health Clinician in Placerville, CA
    Former Employee - Mental Health Clinician in Placerville, CA

    I worked at El Dorado County full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Placerville, CA

    I worked at El Dorado County full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Everybody 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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

    Former Employee - Social Worker in South Lake Tahoe, CA

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Favoritism, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more courtesy and respect.
