    I have been working at County of Sacramento

    Pros

    union-protected jobs, pay is okay for people working in treatment center, get to work with some really messed up people (clients and employees) for psychology understanding

    Cons

    DHHS: management is horrible, initiatives are written in e-mail memos that nobody reads, including my supervisor. Management is nasty, politics are intense and harsh. Employees are seen as a cog in the machine and not respected. No learning is valued, rather policies and procedures are followed. Union-protected jobs lead to many incompetent and nasty employees making a miserable work environment. One entering as a clinician is not going to move up the ladder. Budget mess and no ability to vision or be proactive in protecting people's jobs or services of the communities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Radical re-engineering efforts need to take place in DHHS, and all of the county as it is the most dysfunctional place that I have worked in. This county will fall by the wayside when the budget mess gets serious. If such a thing as a bankrupt county exists, they are heading that direction.
    Communication is paramount, and management respect and openness needs to occur. Accountability is huge, and lists of collaborative behaviors needs to be agreed upon. Not once have I heard of a mission, vision and values penetrating the layers of mgmt to make it to the employees. leaders are managers, simple as that. Managers need to evolve into leaders.
