    Current Employee - Office Specialist III in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at County of Santa Clara full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place if you can become an independent contributor and advance beyond. Defined benefit pension!

    Cons

    Recruitment process is stifling. Transfer band designed to make things fair and impartial curbs growth. The pension is like golden handcuffs and growth is too slow!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will lose solid, hard working employees if you do not sincerely promote the growth and development of ALL of your staff, not just Managers and Leads. There is a great silo between support and professional staff, many support want to cross that and would if you let them!
