    I have been working at San Joaquin County full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Retirement and meeting some awesome co-workers. Tireless union.

    Cons

    Management is not respectful of staffs needs, concerns. Management can be "messy" in how they proceed with promotions as is mostly based on who you know and if you are willing to kiss-butt for it.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at San Joaquin County full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of departments and school reimbursement program vacation time and benefits. Some very dedicated people who really want to help despite lack of resources and support.

    Cons

    Except for that big o shiny building downtown most infrastructure is falling apart and I myself have had issues getting appropriate equipment.Management is not unionized in most departments. This leads to a lot of conflict with Union employees. Very unclear chain of command in some departments. Questionable ethics. Very low pay for licensed positions. Very high turn around in certain departments due to poor management and higher pay other places. Conflict of interest doesn't seem to be a concern when addressed. Expectation that breaks are for people who aren't working as hard. Actually over 20 complaints filed with PERB in my department alone this year. RATS AND ROACHES IN SOME SITES.
