    Good place to work, if your working for State government.

    Budget Analyst (Current Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsLike many other departments in the State, the Department of General Services heavily populated with Boomers. This will eventually lead to a mass exodus in the coming years which gives ample opportunity for promotions. Due to its location in West Sacramento, the parking is about a third of what people pay in the heart of Downtown Sacramento. The office culture is good and management seems to care about its employees. The various offices within the department range from Telecommunications, Fleet and Legal. There are plenty of changes to move between different offices within the department and work in a field that is completely unrelated.

    ConsThere are no distinct downsides to working for the Department.

    A steady job in plan reviewing K through 14 School construction for seismic safety compliance

    Senior Structural Engineer (Current Employee)
    Oakland, CA

    ProsSteady work that fits in lifestyle. Opportunity to ensure that school kids are safe in the event of an earthquake. Opportunity to work with many Architects and Strucutral Engineers to improve school construction.

    ConsLimited career options and subject to political pressures that run counter to good engineering judgment. Some disappointment with the marginal quality of work being reviewed and a lack of concern for quality design by the Architects and Engineers who submit their work on behalf of the School Districts. Construction technology is often slow to improve relative to commercial work Often tradition, policy, politics get in the way of better design and construction practices.
