If you like stress with little outcomes, be part of a politician's office

Senior Staffer (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

ProsIt is fun working for Arnold. He is dynamic and engaging. However, the rest of the Governor's Office it totally disfunctional. Too many opinions. Too much politics. Little emphasis on public policy. The office has disperate opinions and often just those closest to Governor have his ear -- meaning his wife first and his chief of staff second.

ConsThere is no clear direction. It seems that on any given day, there are about 100 fires to put out; literally and figuratively. There are no policies truly committed to. There are a lot of ideas and very poor implementation of those ideas. Working with the legislature is totally ineffective. Most Members have difficulty finding the bathroom, yet alone know how to work toward policies that really help the people. This makes work in the Governor's Office unbelieveably frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a plan. Stick to it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
