I have been working at Santa Clara Superior Court

Pros

- Very educated workforce in the Silicon Valley which translate into educated incoming government workforce (rare in public sector)
- Offers educational reimbursement and valuable classes both inside and outside of employer setting
- Pay is competitive for area in public sector
- Constantly trying to think outside the box (this is rare for public sector)

Cons

- Level of competence of higher management is low (typical for public sector)
- Lots of "red tape" (but again typical for public sector)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Unfortunately, you need more institutional education rather than relying on 30 years of work experience. This is especially so in the Silicon Valley.

    I have been working at Santa Clara Superior Court full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    NOTHING well, maybe the benefits but if you don't have kids, enjoy paying your worthless coworkers' insurance benefits for their kids.

    Cons

    Everything. If you have half a brain and wish to move forward the ONLY way is to be there forever. They consistently pass up the few good workers in favor of those who have union seniority. If you like being nitpicked to death, with supervisors who barely understand the job watching your every move...this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump the union. Impossible I know but without getting rid of them they will never cut out the dead weight.
