    Pros

    As a auditor you will have a chance to travel and meet people outside of work.

    Cons

    Best to have a degree in Accounting or Business.

    Advice to Management

    Picking the best people to promote does not happen many times. Management looks for individuals they feel can get along with as oppose to people who know the program.


  2. Great Start

    Pros

    Good place to start your career. State is a laid back environment. Not too much work pressure. Great benefits and pension plan. You can pretty much take time off whenever you want. If job security is your priority, then this is for you.

    Cons

    Some people can be very unprofessional and unmotivated. Sometimes teamwork is lacking. There is not too much room for growth. You have to transfer to another department to speed up promotion.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Willingness to send employee's to training as needed.

    Cons

    As in any work place, if the manager can not manage well & wont listen to employee's...things do not end well. Very unfortunate

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's & have an open door policy. It's best to work with people to get the job done quickly & accurately.

    Pros

    -meet other brilliant college students that inspire you to do better -the office environment is great exposure to a professional, structured setting -the office staff is consistently helpful, intelligent, and understanding -they really want you to learn as an intern--you get weekly opportunities to network/ video conference with the controller's staff in Sacramento to ask questions and learn about their jobs. -looks great on your resume

    Cons

    -mostly menial intern work; printing stuff out, editing things, phone calls -office is located in LA so navigating the commute is your responsibility

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fantastic guidance! Continue to be so approachable. And we love when you participate in the interns' shenanigans.
