    I worked at CSU Sacramento full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My internship as a Staff Writer with Sac State was a positive experience. They give you the chance to prove yourself. All yo have to do is sign up and your basically immediately on the Staff.

    Cons

    A lot of work. Can't take too many classes while also doing this internship. It was a rewarding experience though. I tried taking 21 units and doing it, which didn't work out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to build the reputation of Sac state university. CSUS is a great environment for higher education.

    I worked at CSU Sacramento full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly staff and student population, beautiful campus with lots of green areas.

    Cons

    low pay, staff often work outside of classification, disparity in staff/management salary, merit pay approved but never funded, pay to park.

    Advice to Management

    Promote or hire staff to perform duties as outlined in the CSU classifications. Provide in range progressions when possible, stop thinking that staff is lucky to work for the University, because there are better work environments.

    I worked at CSU Sacramento full-time

    Pros

    - Flexible in who they choose to hire due to student population - Hours for seasonal part time work were decent (up to 40 at one point) - Training covers everything you need to know - Most coworkers pleasant

    Cons

    - Some coworkers unpleasant (normal to any big corporation) - Little opportunity to advance from season full time to permanent positions (normal to any temp job)

    Advice to Management

    I am overall satisfied with how I was treated at the company, no big areas of concern.
