I worked at County of Sacramento

Pros

Line staff and colleagues were great. - mutually supportive to get things done.

Cons

Upper Management and the policy weenies tended to get in the way and a great deal of time and energy was necessary to work around them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your staff, get them the tools an resources they need to do their jobs, get out of the way and work with them rather than against them.

    I worked at County of Sacramento

    Pros

    There are some great and really enthusiastic employees that work for the County. They are the backbone that do all the work for the County. The benefits are great especially dental and retirement plans.

    Cons

    The management does not care about increasing an employee's skill level. They are afraid that smart employee might pass them up and take their job away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your day to day employees and management less. I know my department would have run a lot smoother without a supervisor.

    I have been working at County of Sacramento full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The county has strong unions and better than average pay rates. There are awesome benefits with thirteen paid holidays in addition to sick leave and vacations. For those in a certain tier, Kaiser is free to the individual employee.

    Cons

    The challenges are similar to most company challenges. Quite often those in high places make policies that affect lower level employees and the policy makers have no clue as to what is happening on a day to day basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more questions of the employees doing the day to day work with the consumers and taxpayers of Sacramento County.
