    California State Controller's Office- Unclaimed Property Division

    Accounting Analyst (Current Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsSome 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Overall, a very good place to work

    Office Technician (Former Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall good experience. Mostly menial work, but fantastic peers and office staff

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

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