    I worked at County of Sacramento full-time (Less than a year)

    Great benefits, lots of overtime if you want to work, co-workers.

    Cons

    Favoritism, promotion by who you know not merit, unbalanced caseloads, unethical behaviors by management, not support for line staff,

    Advice to Management

    Be professional

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at County of Sacramento full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits; health, dental and vision, insurance; and the retirement plan. Other benefits include sick leave and adequate personal time off benefit.

    Cons

    - Difficult to take pre-scheduled time off due to work load demands
    - The practice among some to take inappropriate advantage of WCI. False, or suspected fake, WCI's negatively affect moral for many reasons - and also leave remaining staff somewhat disabled as they work to provide services while their peer is out 'injured'.

    Advice to Management

    If more investigators were used, false WCI claims would be prevented or interrupted. And the costs of hiring WCI investigators would quickly be recovered when fraudulent claims were identified.

    The greater benefit of course would be that more employees would be at work and better services to the public could be provided.

    As with most companies, Some employees are great and enthusiastic to help and are the true backbone of what customer service represents. Good benefits.
