Foothill-De Anza Community College District
Job Work/Life Balance
Productive work place with amazing co-workers
HR Specialist (Current Employee), Los Altos Hills, CA – February 2, 2013
Pros: flexible work hours, close to home
I am very pleased with my work environment at Foothill DeAnza Community College District. In the Benefits department, the team works as a close knit community. Since the team is small, there is a lot of scope for independent decision making, which helped me develop on my skills of independent problem solving and thinking through any problem from all angles such as from the employee, the District, legal, financial and setting precedents. It also help me build on my people skills, communication skills and customer service skills.
I am proud to have won accolades and recognition from many of my customers for resolving the intricate issues of their benefits claims.
I most enjoy the lunches that we go out together as team. This helped me build a good rapport with my co-workers. We help each other out when needed. While I do enjoy working at Foothill DeAnza Community College District, it being a government organization does produce challenges of its own. Our customers approach us with a presumption of the department being inefficient and are usually pleasantly surprised that we are as efficient as they would like us to be.
