    I have been working at County of Ventura, California

    Pros

    Overtime is optional and generally frowned upon. The benefits are good and the pay is OK. If you excel then you will eventually grow professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Job growth is somewhat slow due to nobody ever leaving and the inability to open new positions. Dead weight is all around due to the union preventing layoffs of inefficient workers. Senior management does not effectively communicate down or up, causing a negative view throughout the county and with it's own employees. Very little efforts are put forth to centralize IT across the county, resulting in a lose standards, and competiion with other county agencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Effective communication and sharing strategic initiatives in a more meaningful way would help. Ensure the viability of IT Services through centralization across the County.
