Dead end job, nepotism, constant in-fighting

IT Position (Former Employee)
Redwood City, CA

I worked at San Mateo County

ProsDecent benefits, union protection, pension if you can last decades here

ConsLittle chance of promotion - all based on favoritism, constant in-fighting within departments, people don't cooperate well together, there's always someone who only has 1 skill and knows 1 system for 30 years and nothing else so s/he does everything possible to keep that knowledge only to him/herself.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry actually reprimanding your employees, especially the ones that act out and do a very poor job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
