County of San Diego - A Secure Place to Work

Chief Air Pollution Control (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsGreat pension and job security. In many areas there are opportunities for advancement. It seemed that minorities or nontraditional employees, like myself, were treated more fairly than in private industry. The fact that the County is a stable employer and you know your benefits are secure is very helpful in minimizing anxiety about your families security. The other benefits, like dental and health insurance, access to 401 plan and 457 plan if you wanted them are also better than what you typically find. As employees age there did not seem to be any pressure to retire because you were becoming a senior citizen.

ConsPigeon holing people. Lack of respect for individuals. Failure to deal with performance issues in an honest and open manner.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more supportive of middle managers.
