Excellent, Stable Employer

Director (Former Employee)
Sacramento, CA

ProsFinancially stable and fiscally conservative educational system, large system that allows for many career types beyond teaching (i.e., IT, trades, administrative)
Excellent benefits, retirement (PERS or STRS)
Great people work there

ConsSometimes when hiring or promoting, the focus is too much on earned degrees versus actual work experience.
With the retirement of Chancell Brice Harris, the District has lost an exemplary leader who reached out beyond academic circles to business and community leaders.
Califiornia state budget problems can be a challenge for growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementIts ok to promote from within due to the employee's character, knowledge, skills set, even if they don't have the desired degree.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The place has potential but is unwilling to change over to being a "real" police department.
