Good place to work with great benefits and salary thanks to the union negotiations. However, advancement opportunities are competitive and not many are available unless individuals retire.
Foster Parent in San Jose, CA

The reward is helping the kids and helping families stay together. The department is difficult to work with though. Constant excuses for why jobs aren't done (whether filing court paperwork, getting children services, giving parents services), which affects the kids, their parents, and us as foster parents.
Physician in San Jose, CA

Administration pays lip service to the mission of the healthcare system but do not respect or support those that actually implement it. They don’t know how to do this, so it becomes all about themselves and their careers and prioritizing short-sighted measures of productivity behind which they can hide their real failures of leadership. The people doing all the work, caring dutifully for others, are not supported and are treated like expendable workers bees. The past 10 years have been marked by increasing tension between “management” and labor, and the gulf between them is widening, while the mandate has become strained, to the detriment of those we are actually here to serve.
