Excellent office and environment
Assistant Assessor-Recorder (Former Employee) – San Rafael, CA – December 2, 2013
As Assistant Assessor-Recorder, I was directly responsible for the management of the administrative functions of the office (e.g., budget, personnel, information systems, public relations, policies, etc.} I also acted in the stead of the Assessor-Recorder in her absence (overseeing all functions of the office).
The management team was one of the better teams I had experienced. There was an element of old-school tradition, yet very conducive to innovation (the office converted to a completely digital work process). There was completely open communication, great sense of humor, and appreciation for all staff.
There was no "hardest" part of the job. Everything was done with support and confidence of management, peers, and staff. The only "hard" part was leaving, I returned to New Mexico to help care for my parents.
The most enjoyable part of my job was supporting my staff. Particularly the IT and Budget staff who had ambitious goals and I enjoyed helping overcome administrative barriers. Most of all, I enjoyed working for the Assessor-Recorder, a very devoted and learned professional who was as much engaged in the work of the office as any of the most dedicated staff.
Great support, empowerment, and trust. Great place to live too
Expensive to live in the area
