    I worked at CSU Sacramento part-time

    Pros

    One of the best working environments I've even been in. Relaxed, friendly, encouraging staff and coworkers. Flexible and understanding. Enjoyable staff events/retreats.

    Cons

    Government and bureaucratic inefficiencies. IT is run mainly by two full time individuals which can lead to service requests taking forever to get handled.

    Advice to Management

    Implementing an on-boarding process and having established processes in place to show people the responsibilities of the job, rather than ad-hoc solutions. Check in with staff on improving said proccesses and technology to make job more efficient.
