I have been working at San Mateo County as a contractor

Pros

The mini orientation in before the interview is very informative. Fair interview process. You get a response whether you get the position or not. Everyone is friendly in the Office

Cons

You have to be on the eligibility list in order to get a full time job. Many people stay with the county for a long time so it takes a while to promote.

    Pros

    Good pay, stable hours, centralized management and organization. Downtown Redwood City can be hit or miss. Easy freeway access to either 280 or 101.

    Cons

    Cost of living is insane, resulting in a commute - which adds time and aggravation to the mix. Some old school employees sit in positions and limit upward mobility.
