    bad morale in some departments

    Program Assistant (Current Employee) Redding, CA (US)

    ProsA paycheck with benefits is great

    ConsOne of my first required county wide trainings was an eye opener as coworkers from various departments shared their disgust with disrespectful managers. My own manager was not remotely qualified for her job lacking the education and skills to do quality work. She micromanaged her staff into quitting, or hating their work. She got promoted for that and this seems to be how the county rewards arrogance and incompetence. Arrogance is the operative word when dealing with management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and realize there is a morale issue that could be improved if you provided any indication that you cared for your staff's career and well-being

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Another Government Clone

    Cog In the Wheel (Current Employee) Redding, CA (US)

    ProsBeing a government job its a secure postion and there is opportunity for advancement if you fit in and know what you are doing.

    ConsVery Clicky, government is adverse to change and runs at a snails pace which makes innovation and change very difficult. Government is risk-adverse and employees are afraid of making mistake and there is alot of CYA going on or blaming somone else. Morale is not very good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWow! Where do I start....Communication is not very good between upper management and those below so they need to fix that. Also Managment should help with morale bring inspiration to the work place tell people they are doing a good job make it a place where people want to go to work not just some 9 to 5 job where you collect a paycheck. Where there is a lack of vision the people perish. Alot of employees are adverse to taking the lead or promoting a new idea as that is not enouraged within managment. There is alot of dead weight in the lower job functions as well but thats another question.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of favoritism, seniority is never considered

    Social Worker II (Current Employee) Redding, CA (US)

    ProsIt is one of the top paying organizations in this area,

    ConsThey are not supportive of line staff, two many superviors with large salaries who do little

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestore the money and benefits taken from the line staff, 6 percent of pay, required to pay our retirement in full whereas county paid in past, these deductions were suppose to be temporary now they are permanent, Quit hiring positions that are high salary, we have way to many supervisors. Recongize senority not who socializes better with management, get rid of the good ol boys network and their power and control. Lets become like most counties professional and to serve the people, not themselves.

    Public Works is a good Department

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Redding, CA (US)

    ProsThe work has been interesting, the opportunities good, management is receptive to ideas and concerns and within the Department there is a very positive work environment.

    ConsIt is government so don't go in thinking you will change everything. Understand that government agencies must function differently from private firms. Take the not so good with the good and understand that things could be so much worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWithin my Department I am very satisfied. I have heard some dissatisfaction from other Departments, but I can't speak to that.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
