    I have been working at San Mateo County full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Public service, if you want to help families, vets, kids, then a county job is a good way to reach a lot of people.

    Cons

    Under the most recent director, HSA has slipped from being one of the best to one of the worst. Insiders (family members, sycophants) are promoted above people who are focused on doing their work. Panel interviews are used to undermine civil service procedures and advance applicants who have neither the work history, education nor background.

    Advice to Management

    Many managers were hired by the outgoing director, so, like her, they don't have degrees or experience in their field, so I guess they should fire themselves or each other, and get some really good consultants, preferably people with experience. Most of the directors at HSA have zero experience in their fields.
