Santa Clarita, CA: Confused planning so things have to get done last minute most of the time.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Santa Clarita, CA

ProsGood compensation and chance to work at other departments

Cons1) Bad planning so things come up last minute and people have to run around to put out fires by working a lot and not getting paid for over time (if salaried)
2) Finger pointing and red tape and politics are pretty bad here
3) Constant paging people overhead gets distracting and loud
4) Sexism in some areas are audible
5) Bottom line dictates managers' decisions and canceling of the holiday shutdown (between Christmas and New Year's day)
