    "Great agency to work for with many benefits"

    Pros

    Able to work flexible hours and car pool. For retirement benefits it's up to par if not better than most federal government employment .

    Cons

    If new with no County work experience takes a while to earn veteran benefits. If you are new there might be a little favoritism against you.

    Advice to Management

    No favoritism please.

    I have been working at Orange County (California) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    County jobs are secure, pay rate compared to private sector is good. Vacation and benefits are always a plus.

    Cons

    If you are seeking employment with the Cashier department at OCSD, be a person that had thick skin to handle all the drama. The seniority folks think they are your bosses. Schedules change frequently, the males also gossip about women issues which is hilirous to hear. Working there is like going to a war field everyone has drama! For your own sanity look for a better opportunity, this place is maddness!

    Advice to Management

    Change Managment, starting from the top to the bottom!

    Current Employee - Senior Social Worker in Orange, CA

    I have been working at Orange County (California) (More than a year)

    Pros

    Once you're past the one year probation, your job is pretty secure if you don't mess up royally.
    Vacation/Sick Time is quick to accumulate and there is no cap.

    Cons

    The stereotype of the bad social worker who is uncaring and working against you is definitely true with about a quarter of its staff. Some of it may be contributed by burn out/internalized racism and sexism/lack of education and training.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide additional training to the social workers who are not upholding social work ethics or let them go if they do not follow through. Too often do I see a supervisor turn a blind eye to rude and aggressive social workers.

    Pros

    Great health insurance and other benefits, nice co-workers, flexible work schedule, and meaningful work. Pay is average. Lots of paid time off or non-management employees.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't always know what they are doing. Often times the CEO picks staff that are not very good and then does not address problem managers

    Walk the talk

    I have been working at Orange County (California) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are fairly generous with a decent retirement package, if you can stay that long.

    Cons

    Poor management. The retirement is good, but more than 20% of your pay is pulled out for it, you have no choice.

    Advice to Management

    Actually seek feedback.
