Pros

The compensation for social worker III's are pretty fair compared to other counties. Santa Clara county has more resources than other counties to help provide direct service to clients.

Cons

Child Welfare Cases can be tough and emotional draining. Be prepared to work past 5 on many nights and swamped with phone calls, home visits, court reports and confrontational clients.

    Pros

    Dept of Revenue is a great place to work because of the staff. Everyone has a passionate attitude towards helping others and clients. It rarely to see staff members with a frown on their face. The atmosphere in this office is ecstatic and have food parties at least twice a month.

    Cons

    The only cons I cant think of is the numbers of clients contacting the office daily and a lot of data entry and updates.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to offer positions for student interns to advance in the company. I felt that student interns were left on the wayside after a year of work.


  2. "Good Place to Work"
