What is the hiring process like at City and County of San Francisco?

Great work/life balance. Civic Pride and Civic Duty. I feel like a member of the team and that I am doing something worthwhile. In private sector, I felt like I was just there to make someone else really rich.

Lots of seemingly pointless processes. The hiring process is atrocious.

Advice to Management

Keep trying to do the seemingly impossible. Stay on the edge of controversial policies. Be leaders in doing what is right for those who cannot do it for themselves.

Pros

Paid very, very well especially for a college student with limited experiences. Supervisor and fellow co-workers were very welcoming and quick to help. Many resources, groups, and events organized for interns.

What is working from home like at City and County of San Francisco?

Pros

Depending on the department and supervisor the experience can be great or mired in slow moving mediocrity. It's government. Benefits are very good, jobs are stable, and the opportunity to kove around is good.

Cons

It's government. Don't expect the latest tech or progressive remote work policies. Most departments are butt in seat. The facilities are generally old and worn with a few exceptions. Better like unions, because EVERY job is a part of one - and the rules of hiring, promotion etc can get confusing based on contracts.

Advice to Management

You're the city of start ups and innovation...if you want to keep the best and brightest (particularly in tech) you need to compete with the likes of Twitter and Google i n work policies and benefits. Mayor Lee was a friend and good boss, I left during his tenure. I also worked for Gavin Newsom and Willie Brown. Each administration brings new priorites and cu,ture..so I can't speak to London Breed's culture...I only work with her on the Board and well...city politics are brutal. We'll leave it at that.

Don't expect the latest tech or progressive remote work policies.
