Senior (Former Employee) –  Planning commissionJanuary 27, 2017
The agency is management heavy and cares little about their employees. Some of the departments suffer as a result of corrupt managers but it is very old school good old boy work environment so they will ignore or eliminate their staff in order to protect management. The union Is not powerful enough to provide support to employees when serious issues arise. The agency lacks diversity. They have received complaints about bad behavior of their managers in multiple divisions but are unwilling to make the necessary changes to protect staff and eliminate harassment and discrimination.
Pros
Hard pressed to think of any
Cons
Oppressive work environment

Eligibility Worker III (Current Employee) –  Placerville, CAAugust 31, 2016
Sadly, not a great place to work. I loved helping those in need in the community. I hated the culture. There is too much nepotism and the concomitant favoritism. Either you're in or your out around there. Training Department is still trying to figure out what they are trying to accomplish, but as one trainer said, "You're just trainees. Once I'm done with you, I never have to speak to you again." Clearly, not a lot of investment in the success of new hires.

You won't have to work overtime. There does seem to be room for advancement; however, you better be part of the "inner circle" if you want to move up. Management has adopted a secretive method of ranking employees; you won't know why you're being told you're not up to snuff, but they do and think you should know the reasons, although they will fail to specifically tell you, so you will not have a clue on how to improve to meet their standards. They use fear and intimidation to manage, meaning you will be talked to in ways you may have never experienced before. There seems to be a real management decision to keep everyone on their toes by making them feel that they are about to be fired any minute. A very scary, sad place to work... Work there if you dare. It all looks friendly and happy on the surface; underneath are a lot of very unhappy people working at a job they hate because they need the job and the income (which is below standard for the work required.)
Pros
There is room for advancement
Cons
No, just no. You'll regret it.

Child Protective Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Placerville and South Lake TahoeApril 9, 2014
In the last two years, El Dorado County CWS has gone through a major overhaul--replacing most of the staff with either experienced staff and supervisors from other counties who bring tried and true ideas and models for best practice, or with new social workers fresh out of school willing to implement the new ideas and motivated to the work of helping families recover and make hard but beneficial changes. The teamwork in this county is extraordinary. This is a great group and now is the time to get involved for shaping a great program!
