    I enjoyed my job very much while I worked for San Mateo County and I only left due to a move out of the area.

    Pros

    I enjoyed all of the staff that I worked with and though I am now retired, I still go back from time to time to visit my former co-workers.

    Cons

    My only complaint during my time with San Mateo County was when a person was promoted to supervise my unit, but the person was very incompetent as a supervisor and did not have any "people skills". This person eventually retired from the county within a year of her being promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    San Mateo County management should be concerned that people in positions as supervisors or office managers have the skills to work well with people. It makes it very difficult for clerical staff when their supervisor/office manager does not show respect for staff or appreciation for work performed.
