    Current Employee - AGPA in Sacramento, CA

    I have been working at CDSS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of my co workers have been great - very dedicated to their jobs and a great team to work with. The location is great (downtown Sacramento) and the salary/benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Terribly antiquated extremely hierarchical structure. Some managers will micromanage to the point of monitoring when you take a break (even if your position in no way requires you to be at your desk at very specific times). Being outspoken in any way is very much looked down on. The executive team is far more concerned with being liked than being effective

    Advice to Management

    Train middle management to respect their employees as professionals, rather than treating them like teenagers who can't be trusted to manage their own time or projects. Empower your employees to act effectively, and recognize that acting effectively means that sometimes, not everyone in the room will be happy

      I worked at CDSS full-time

      Pros

      None that I can think of, get in and out while you can and get experience

      Cons

      Embarrassed you in front of all employees to see who passed probation and who did not. Luncheon to celebrate people who passed but complete disregard to people who didn’t. Management does not practice emotional intelligence with they staff. Therefore employees moral is low which trickles down to how they service the public. There needs to be an Internal Audit Investigation there ASAP.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in your management and employees Take some emotional intelligence classes
