IT Manager (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I have been working at Office of the Governor of the State of California

ProsGreat first line management. Good training if there is time do to under staffing we often miss training opportunities . Good benefits. Opportunities are there but you must be aggressive. Fortunately I am happy with where i currently am.

ConsNot enough backup in positions. Budget problems. Lack of information that could effect you job or employment. Dress code for employees that work as labor should allow for jeans and tee shirt. We are required to set up and move computers. We have to work in Communication closet and run network cables yet have to wear slacks and collard shirts while performing thies duties

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep workers informed of passable decisions that might effect the job. Allow employees in on the decision making process.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
