    StarStarStarStarStar Former Sheriff's Lieutenant in Riverside, California

    The best thing is the value of the retirement package, the worst is the retiree medical benefit.

    Pensions are great. You can't find those in the private sector. Unfortunately, you have to pay in 8% of your wages and it is not optional.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Director in Moreno Valley, California

    Way too expensive for employees. Especially medical insurance. Employee share is substantially higher than all other employers.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current HR Technician II in Riverside, California

    Cons: High employee contribution for healthcare benefits; PPO option is out of reach for most county employees. Pros: 3 options to choose from; county shares premium costs.

    I love that after 5 years of being vested the county pays all of your retirement fees. I had to cash it out after I left and after only 7 years it was almost $12k after fees. I don't think there was really a downside to the benefits. Depending on your family size and location you could choose what really works best for you. They had hmo and ppo's to choose from and plenty of doctors.

    Good package through the union, but as with all government entities the last contract had them trying to defer poor budget decisions on the line staff.

    Allowed time banks for vacation and for sick time. Health insurance was good and coverage was very good with the provider I chose.

    Good benefits, but they always threaten to take things away when the budget falls short

    Basic benefits aren't expensive, however, the benefits are through an EPO which is called Exclusive Care. The popular provider is RUHS (formerly RCRMC). You may run into clients. Worse than that, they see uninsured clients which means long waits for appointments, etc. If you make nice with nurses, etc., you can call from your County phone and try to use your County employment to get what you need. If you choose Kaiser, you'll spend more. If you chose the PPO, the benefits suck. The county gives you a credit each pay period to pay for benefits including medical, dental, and vision. If you exceed the credit, you pay out of pocket, If you don't use all of the credit, it's paid as taxable income. If anyone tells you that you can claim the credit without getting insurance, it's a thing of the past. You must get insurance to get the credit. If you already have insurance, get RivCo insurance as secondary, and use the excess credit for additional taxable income. Your welcome :)
