- "Lifers" (state employees who have passed their probation and have no desire for advancement--they can bring any team down which makes it hard to work with them at times because they are not open to new ideas or to change.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Continue to foster the minds of your staff by challenging them and ensuring they are the best employees that they can be.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, great employees, they encourage "outside the box" thinking, good pension and benefits

    Cons

    you are tied to the state for the good and bad. compensation is tied to the State. since it is hard to get rid of people, you get some that do no work and have no knowledge and there is nothing anyone does about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    repremand those who do no work and recognize those who do great work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA

    Pros

    good retirement benefits, impossible to get fired.

    Cons

    Politics reign. Senior mgmt seems competent but middle management is grossly underqualified, directionless, and rely on buzzword drizzle to sound brighter than they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    set better direction for middle management. Reduce the ridiculous amount of bureaucracy needed to get anything done.
