    Dead end job, nepotism, constant in-fighting

    IT Position (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    I worked at San Mateo County

    Pros: Decent benefits, union protection, pension if you can last decades… Cons: Little 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… Advice to Senior Management: Try actually reprimanding your employees, especially the ones that act… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
