Pros

Ability to become proficient in learning and applying the sales and use tax law, challenging to resolve complicated tax administration and collection issues, opportunity to promote to various locations in California, opportunity to change type of work classification, ability to provide quality service and be helpful to taxpayers, and the recognition that taxes collected funds the rest of State Government, including schools and colleges, and pays for infrastructure. Second oldest profession in the world. Very good benefits, i.e. holidays, sick leave, vacation leave, medical, dental and vision insurance, and retirement program.

Cons

Agency is political and the elected Board Members can do pretty much what ever they wish. Due to the politics collecting taxes is often not perceived as being the top priority. The individual Board Members make the hiring decisions for district supervisors and managers, and their decisions can negatively impact supervisors and managers. Slow to make improvements needed to do a superior job collecting taxes and administering the law. Management of the sales and use tax program is too slanted in favor of the audit program. Extremely difficult to terminate employees that have substandard performance.

Advice to Management

The Chief of Field Operations for the 1st and 2nd Districts should be replaced. The person has been a major factor for a number of supervisor and managers that have left the agency, and the leadership style negatively affects the morale of subordinate supervisors and managers. Need to ensure that employees have adequate influence in getting the tools they need to do their jobs. Need more bottom to top communication rather than the top to bottom that predominates.
