I worked at Auto Club of Southern California as a contractor (less than a year)Pros
20 Minutes from my driveway to my cubicle. Your mileage may vary.
You don't have to work too hard because no one else does. Unless you have an issue with having to look busy without actually being busy, you will love it.
They don't fire anybody, so I guess if you are a dud, you will do fine.Cons
1. Like a prison -- guards watch you swipe in and swipe out, and management lets you know they can run a report anytime to see how much you are away from your desk.
2. No break rooms, except for a couple of dingy places with a some card tables and vending machines. If you want coffee, you have to swipe out and go the cafeteria. Forget about heating up a quick snack -- there are 3 microwaves in the cafeteria and you can stand in line with the rest of the prisoners to heat your lunch up.
3. So political it is creepy. Scheming, scamming managers. It is like a bucket of crabs.
4. Lousy equipment. You basically have to build your own computer and scrounge up whatever you need to survive, be it software or hardware, or a chair.
5. They still have mainframes and VB apps. You'll see an occasional type-writer. Go up to IT and you can see programmers sitting back to back in small cubes, working on 14" CRTs.
6. Pay is low and they try to make you feel like you are lucky to have a job there.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Ditch the mainframes.
Get more than one IT support guy.
Put in some break rooms.
Implement a 360-review and fire anyone who is hated by everybody.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
