Easy and Flexible

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Fresno, CA

I worked at California State University

ProsI like worked work at the library because it was a good experience in having work freedom from strict supervisors.

ConsThere is no real budget, some of the supervisors there might even be laid off sometime soon, not reliable as a means of real work.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter scheduling techniques would be very effective, stronger management abilities as in communication, employee meetings, and directing the employees in working.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
