    I worked at County of Sacramento full-time

    Pros

    Good security and benefits with decent pay.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, government work will tend to create a culture of laziness and the few of us who actually work will have to do a lot more than most.

    Advice to Management

    Please try and hold your staff to a reasonably high standard. It sometimes seems as though you are merely waiting out your retirement.

    I worked at County of Sacramento full-time

    Pros

    Job security once probation is passed. Benefits are excellent. Most positions are office 9-5. Occasional overtime is offered by managers/supervisors. If that is what you prefer then you'll likely be pleased.

    Cons

    Downsides could include negative coworkers. You can't be terminated for just any reason but bear in mind that neither can your negative coworkers so you'll need to manage your expectations. Also, most positions are union(UPE). You might feel a certain way about that depending on your politics but either way your union dues will be deducted on a bi-weekly basis.

    Pros

    Vacation and sick leave is a great aspect of working for the government

    Cons

    Not a lot of promotional Opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind where you came from.

    I have been working at County of Sacramento full-time

    Pros

    Great working environment, great benefits and there is opportunity for promotion. It is also easy to move to different areas of the county once working.

    Cons

    There aren't many raises. If you don't promote there isn't much of a pay increase. Starting as an office assistant is a great way to get in the county but one should look to promote if looking for job growth.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great in the department I work for (District Attorney office). I have no complaints.
