    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at County of Sacramento full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and job security

    Cons

    lack of opportunity for entry level staff to progress; poorly trained management with few people skills

    Advice to Management

    get some REAL training in how to effectively communicate; listen to and take action on staff's genuine concerns and complaints; for those who cannot handle the latter, retire or move on to a less demanding job.

    Pros

    Pay every two weeks. I have no other pros.

    Cons

    Declining benefits over time. Not enough pay difference between new employees and seasoned emploees. Unrealistic timelines. Poor communication. Leadership doesn't know it's programs. Dangerous for licensed personnel. No overtime. Encouaged to work off the clock. No value to actual employees versus temps.

    Advice to Management

    Shadow your people. Put back standards qualifying journeyman level vetsus new hires/new grads. Work on your communication skills. Add benefits as incentives to the low oay. Pay your people what they are worth. Years of no raises is embarressing. Stop job tranfers and input fromnew employees until they are a tual emoyees that have passed probation.

    I worked at County of Sacramento full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great medical and dental benefits! The county holds many types of training classes and programs for employees, which in turn, betters the employee.

    Cons

    Many departments have formed so-called 'cliques' (like the ones in high school), walking around the office, spreading gossip and actually pointing fingers at the person they're talking about, making it obvious. This of course creates a hostile work environment. Unfortunately these cliques can sometimes include Supervisors and the Managers.

    Advice to Management

    If you're management, act professional.

    I worked at County of Sacramento full-time

    Pros

    Retirement, stability with few layoffs, holidays

    Cons

    I received very poor training from a supervisor who really was not cutout for her job. She had just been promoted to her position, her assistant was on medical leave and she had two new employees to train. We did not even get training on the integrated computer system/software until we had been on the job 3 months. I was experienced in my field and a mature worker with good work ethic so I figured much out on my own and took ownership of the position. The office structure in my department was like a morgue, few employees to talk to and not even one to have lunch with. This on top of the lack of training was frustrating and very depressing. I quit after 3 months. I might have soldiered through but I was also caring for a sick family member at home and having to deal with such a cold depressive atmosphere at that plant was more then I was willing to continue to subject myself to.

    Advice to Management

    None.
