Pros

The pay leads the industry for the geographic area and the non-monetary compensation puts Placer County, Health & Human Services over the top in terms of best places to work in the Sierra Foothills.

Cons

Upward mobility is difficult with Senior Staff, Supervisors, and Managers holding the same positions for long (often too long) periods of time.

Advice to Management

All organizations need to refresh their leadership periodically to stay competitive and innovative. It is time to plant new seeds in the organization and let them flourish to take local county government to the next level in support of the next generation of county constituents they are tasked with serving.

    Pros

    Good Pay. The benefits are good like you would expect with any state type job. There were some good people there.

    Cons

    Politics can be annoying if you do not know the right people or who you are trying to please. Long Hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing the political game of favoritism and reward and promote based off of production not longevity.

    Pros

    Generally a great group of people to work with. Work in real estate without worry of market fluctuation impacting workload and thus livelihood. If you have a "go along, get along" attitude, and can be great while flying under the radar to avoid superiors feeling threatened, this is a GREAT place to work. Good benefits, nice retirement, paid vacation and sick leave, 12-13 paid holidays a year, best pay in Northern CA for this type of work environment.

    Cons

    Good ole boy system. Promotion and/or lateral opportunities are not typically based on qualifications but rather how well you are liked and whether you are able to ask questions in such a way that does not challenge authority figures. Morale is typically low and pettiness is abundant.
