    It never gets boring, that's for sure

    Good place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sacramento, CA

    ProsGreat training and opportunities to advance. You get to work regular hours, and get paid holidays, paid sick leave, and paid vacation. The benefits are good, you get health/dental/vision but your dependents aren't covered unless you pay more.

    ConsIt's the government so everything is "policy and procedure." Office politics involved as far as who gets promoted though so sometimes your supervisor is someones "friend."

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoosen up a little on policy and procedure, it doesn't have to be by the book all of the time. Especially in Health and Human services.

    Rewarding work, High Stress

    Human Services Social Worker (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

    ProsReasonable compensation relative to other employers within the field. Challenging work. Supportive peers. Potential for a decent work-life balance (relative to the private sector). Good benefits- specifically, health benefits, vac/holiday/sick leave, maternity/paternity leave, some educational reimbursement, flexible schedules. Feedback about job performance, and recognition for effective job performance, is good. There are definitely opportunities for advancement and/or a change in career path- opportunities exist both vertically and horizontally. Job security is very good, as is the opportunity to supplement base pay via overtime, depending on the division/program.

    ConsDepartment is underfunded by state government, creating a situation where workloads are often unmanageable. Ultimately, senior management seems to exacerbate the situation by instituting policies that add to the workload without providing adequate corresponding support. The situation creates significant turnover and dysfunction. The work is stressful by nature; however, the overall dysfunction adds to the stress, which is unacceptable to many and creates a low morale among those who remain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen feasible, implement feedback from junior management and supervisors regarding the impact various policies have on workload and the ability to adequately deliver services. Doing so would greatly improve employee retention, morale, and effectiveness.
