    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Fresno, California

    I like that I have a pension unlike the private industry where I didn't even get 401k option (everyone was on their own). Also, my wife's health insurance is better so I received a monthly cash payment for not using the State's.

    CalPERS is the best in the business for retirement. Dental and vision are free. Health benefits are great.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Associate Environmental Planner in Marysville, California

    Best: medical, PERS, etc. Worst: small paycheck after taxes. Caltrans employees consistently complain about low wages and favoritism.

    Best benefit is family coverage & many plan options. Worst thing regarding med benefits Not all options work for all- medical some providers are troublesome

    Excellent healthcare and benefits package..

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Student Assistant in Los Angeles, California

    No benefits for student assistants. Not even public transportation subsidies. Ironic considering they are looking for ways to promote public transportation... But, you are free to set your schedule.
