Pros

- Very educated workforce in the Silicon Valley which translate into educated incoming government workforce (rare in public sector)
- Offers educational reimbursement and valuable classes both inside and outside of employer setting
- Pay is competitive for area in public sector
- Constantly trying to think outside the box (this is rare for public sector)

Cons

- Level of competence of higher management is low (typical for public sector)
- Lots of "red tape" (but again typical for public sector)

Advice to Management

Unfortunately, you need more institutional education rather than relying on 30 years of work experience. This is especially so in the Silicon Valley.

    Provide free parking to interns who cannot afford to pay the high parking rates. Allow for a longer lunch break so that lunch does not have to be rushed.

    I worked at Santa Clara Superior Court full-time

    Pros

    Autonomous in courtroom. Daily interaction with public, lawyers and Court staff.

    Cons

    Supervisor with control issues and the inability to allow staff to accomplish their work without finding fault. No salary increase in almost 8 years for lower level staff; Judges and upper management received large increases over same time frame.

    Advice to Management

    Provide Supervisors with training in working well with others. Provide better compensation package for staff, and negotiate unions contracts fairly. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
