    I have been working at San Mateo County full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Retirement, location, benefits, competitive salaries. Great for work life balance and families.

    Cons

    Succession planning is preached but not typically adhered to. Lots of outside hires while at the same time laying off quality employees.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits, union protection, pension if you can last decades here

    Cons

    Little chance of promotion - all based on favoritism, constant in-fighting within departments, people don't cooperate well together, there's always someone who only has 1 skill and knows 1 system for 30 years and nothing else so s/he does everything possible to keep that knowledge only to him/herself.

    Advice to Management

    Try actually reprimanding your employees, especially the ones that act out and do a very poor job.
