Current Employee - Director of Communications in San Jose, CA

I have been working at San Jose State full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Decent 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.

Cons

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

    I have been working at San Jose State full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stability, great knowledgeable colleagues, laid back, there's always tomorrow.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy almost always gets in the way. I don't understand the union's concept of placing certain staff members in random roles, simply to retain them as paid staff members.
