Typical Government Job - Lots of Waste!

Technical Staff (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsGood benefits. Managers come and go as they please. 2-hour lunches, shopping, etc. Excellent technical staff - very knowledgeable.

ConsWasteful - spending too much of tax payers money on travel/conferences - boondoggle - why send multiple managers to same conference except to party!!! Multiple layers of management, too many incompetent managers, inefficient, bureaucracy at its best. Have to brown nose around here to get raises. No pay raise for several years.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers need better ethics training. Why should staff work hard when managers come in late everyday, leave early, and are not very productive. Need to be consistent when enforcing policy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Your CV may go… Cons: LOW salary. $41,200 in 2011, plus 4,000 in research funds (travel to conferences, translation services, educational materials, workshops, etc.). Considering the cost of life in… Advice to Senior Management: The leadership of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is excellent. They are really on top of fellows' needs, a well-oiled machine. However, UC in general, as… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
