Pros

Ongoing opportunities for advancement, continuing education both internally and within the CA Community and state college systems, with union representation, good benefits and retirement planning. Have been able to develop technical and administration skills while serving the local community.

Management has shown great foresight in fiscal planning to prepare for economic downturns, but the State has taken the escrow accounts that were in place for resources and programs. They have still shown great restraint in reducing personnel, preferring to relocate personnel or offering downgraded positions. Must function within SEIU guidelines.

Cons

Salaries are a below private sector. Offices and grounds in some areas are substandard, old and in need of repair.

Advice to Management

Please continue to keep the needs of the community and your employees forefront in your long-term planning. You have made San Mateo County proud of the services you provide.
