    I worked at County of Riverside full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent compensation, all state holidays, lots of training available

    Cons

    I worked in HR and unfortunately some of the higher-ups were unethical and inconsistent in their handling of situations.

    Executive team definitely had their favorites and it was noticeable.

    Certain people within HR were toxic and created an unpleasant environment and nothing was done about it. However, there were a lot of great people and great talent.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.

    I worked at County of Riverside full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a government job which leads to stability and great benefits. Most of the people are really nice to work with too.

    Cons

    The main issue I had was with management. Many that were hired ended up being micro managers which wasn't needed. They didn't end up staying long, but it was stressful to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better qualified managers/supervisors so that your support staff works more efficiently.

    I have been working at County of Riverside full-time

    Pros

    I’ve been lucky enough to have supportive supervisors and regional managers in my years with the county. They always want you to succeed and continue to grow within the county.

    Cons

    My position does not pay into short term disability, so when I had my baby, my leave came straight from my vacation and sick leave. Other positions pay into short term and cover a percentage of leave.
