    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Lots of room for professional growth including Title 4-E assistance on getting your MSW and supervision to get your LCSW. There are many paths to pursue from policy and macro SW, to front line, on call emergency investigations.

    Cons

    They will always add more to your plate, regardless of how hard you're working or how many hours of overtime you're doing. It's easy to get burnt out early in your career if you remain in case management.

    Spend more time finding ways to lessen caseloads.

    Pros

    You get provide people who need assistance with the help they need daily.

    Cons

    I loved my job but working at the CSC doesn't allow you to do your job. Your performance is judged by how many calls you take instead of how well you do your job. The CSC is a joke and is completely inefficient, so is no longer having caseloads. It does not help AT ALL. Every caller is rude because they have waited on hold for over an hour (understandably so), but instead of doing whatever you can to help the caller when they finally get through, you have to send an email to a completely different office asking them to do whatever action (which you are trained to be able to do yourself), and then hope that it gets done (which it often times doesn't because they are already swamped with work as it is) so you can hurry up and take the next call. The customer ends up getting even more upset and ends up having to go into the office anyway so it's a complete waste of time. It's extremely frustrating and needs to be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    You have wonderful employees who are scared to run any cases because they don't want bad stats, and the system that is set up makes it easy to just pass the work on to the next worker which makes the number of hands that touch a case way too many, and everything seems to take forever to get done.

    I have been working at San Bernardino County full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent office environment, ideal work schedule, many paid holidays. Given the option to work a 4/10 or 9/80 schedule. I can listen to the radio. There are security guards in the parking lot.

    Cons

    Slow movement for advancement. No room for growth. A college degree seems useless. Pay rate doesn’t vary with experience or education. Little to no training. Job is boring and very repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Reclassify jobs accordingly.
