A university with vision & mission

Director of Communications (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsDecent salaries (for state work) good benefits, an improving HR team, a bright future. Most employees generally care and feel a sense of community, and many are highly motivated by a genuine passion for the mission.

ConsLike any typical state bureaucracy, there's lots of red tape, and a union environment where under-performers can hang on indefinitely

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
