Staff Development Officer (Current Employee), Moreno Valley, CA – December 22, 2014
Cons: no staff, no time off, micromanagement, unprofessional, mass confusion, and an administration characterized by excessive red tape and routine.
Frequent turn over of staff, management covers up their mistakes and blames it on anyone else except senior management. Stay away if you are knowledgeable, honest and have integrity. Terrible place to work. Lots of nepotism and unfair labor practices. The concept of what they have for the company is very different with what is actually implemented.
Accountant I (Current Employee), Murrieta, CA – October 12, 2014
Pros: the friendships i've made will last a lifetime.
Cons: high turnover. must compromise values to get ahead. unfairness.
Management tends to play favorites. If you are open to compromising your values and sucking up to higher ups then this is the job for you. If you are someone with morals and values, then this may not be the right place. I have noticed some shady behavior and have spoke to management about it but they started writing me up because I opened my mouth. – more... Management here are sharks and lack values and will do whatever they possibly can to make your life as stressful as possible. The environment is so toxic on so many levels, that it would take a lifetime to understand why the County of Riverside is the way it is. – less
Disorganized management leads to inconsistent results.
HR analyst (Current Employee), Riverside, CA – October 10, 2014
Pros: okay benefits, federal holidays off, knowledgable co-workers
Cons: long hours, not being able to take time off, you can kiss your social life goodbye
Large workload and long hours. Management has problems balancing workload, so employees expected to pick up the slack. The company is slow to respond to feedback and the bottom line is more important than employee satisfaction. Certain groups have low morale and distrust with senior management.
Police Officer (Current Employee), CA – September 29, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: horrid upper management, lack of ethics
I like my day to day routine as an officer but this is a typical government organization which means that it doesnt matter how much hard work you put in, as long as you know the big shots at the very top. i have seen coworkers who suck up to management practically get away with anything there heart desires. if you are genuinely a hard worker and don't – more... have a kiss butt relationship with management then you are as good as dirt. coworkers are not into working as a team and are very nasty and cut throat as are upper management. it is a "kill or be killed" mentality which makes the County of Riverside what it truly is. – less
They have absolutely no compassion or concern for their employees.
Childrens Social Worker (Current Employee), Riverside, CA – September 28, 2014
Pros: a job in the social service industry
Cons: management has no idea what they are doing, won't stand up for you, job security always at risk, micromanaging, condescending management styles, no loyalty or longevity
Management is the very worst and lacks empathy. You should stay away from Riverside County Social Services unless you want to work for a company that threatens to fire you every other week and your boss yells and talks down to you for every little thing you do. I work here and it is a living nightmare! They need to learn how to treat the people that – more... work for them. I think they should look into why there is such a vast turn over rate.
Horrible! Very unorganized and very unprofessional management. Extremely rude. Would NOT recommend! – less
Office Assistant II - Bilingual (Former Employee), Jurupa, CA – September 24, 2014
Pros: best boss
Cons: administration is rocky
I loved my job at the county, it was amazing to learn so much about animal services. The only problem was the administration, they were too worried about making money but never followed the rules. Why have them?
Health Services Assistant (Current Employee), Riverside, CA – September 20, 2014
Pros: interacting within the community
Cons: high cost of healthcare benefits
I like working within the community helping others to achieve healthy lifestyles. It is very rewarding to interact with others as well as collaborate with organizations to learn how to help others who are less fortunate in lower income areas. This is the most enjoyable part of my job. However, I am stifled in my current job situation within nutrition – more... because I have not obtained my food services degree to become a dietician. I have over 10 years experience within the field of nutrition, but management has changed the criteria in allowing employees to promote without a nutrition education degree. The hardest part is dealing with the political atmosphere and nature within the county departments. – less

Not a very productive working environment as most individuals place importance on everything else first and their work last.
Housekeeper (Current Employee), Moreno Valley, CA – August 26, 2014
Majority of fellow employees on my team appear to take their jobs for granted and really don't appreciate being employed or willing to be responsible. The lead person is not qualified for a position of leadership as he is very inexperienced in this type of work, gives wrong advice and is a mediocre lead person at best.
Office Assistant II (Former Employee), Hemet Ca – August 4, 2014
I really enjoyed my coworker in this job, I only worked as a Temp and wasn't there very long. It was the first time I had worked in mental health/substance abuse. It was interesting, and at one time I considered changing my major, but decided to stick with what I've been doing.
