    I have been working at CSU Sacramento part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The University is mandated to adhere to employees rights as per collective bargaining agreement. It is great to work for this university for retirement and health insurance are available.

    Cons

    It seems that the hiring is behind doors focuses if you are a graduate of the university or of any Californian university. Other graduates get treated as lower class citizens. It is strange as the majority of student body are children of immigrants but faculty are California graduates. There is the culture of disrespect of part-time faculty at least in one of the sciences department. Do not believe what they tell you in the interview that you will be re-hired, they do not walk the talk and they try to save money by hiring own graduates. Tenured faculty make scientific mistakes and a part-time faculty is not allowed to correct mistakes. No academic freedom or even first amendment right to speak! Many faculty have been at this university as "part-time lecturers" for over ten years, that is unreal. Look for a progressive job elsewhere that allow you to progress in your career. Save yourself lots of humiliation and do not work for this university.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and practice what you preach! What the hell is "home grown" you only love your own graduates regardless of qualifications. How does a multicultural Sate of California find it acceptable to brag (only) about home-grown. Smell globalization for a change and have courage to get out of your hornet nest. Look around and stand up for academic freedom and rights to employment based on qualifications and experience even if it is not of "California Grown".
