Pros

The staff treats me as if I am a genuine employee. The staff is well educated hard working and competent regarding it's task at hand. The work environment is top notch. A great place for me to learn and become a well rounded employee. The supervisors are gracious and ask for feedback.

Cons

I am not sure I will be asked to stay on board after graduation.

Present a way in which Student assistants that show true potential can transition to full-time employment after graduation.

    A Great Place to Work

    Current Employee - Health Data Analyst  in  Sacramento, CA
    Current Employee - Health Data Analyst in Sacramento, CA

    Pros

    CalPERS really tries to retain quality people with pay (when possible), recognition and fun social events. It's a State Agency so pay is somewhat hardwired but I good manager will find ways to get you promoted faster than average.

    Cons

    You might earn a little less than your counterpart in the private sector, but the benefits and job security often outweigh the difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and continue to fight for the little guy/gal. It's also important to know that I work for an entity that always tries to keep business transparant and above board.

    Stability of civil service and pension plan.

    Very political. Too many managers. Every department is a silo.

    Behind the scenes dealing is more obvious than you think.
