      I have been working at California Department of Justice full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Consistent work flow / choose your start time. / co workers are great to work with they don’t stay longer then a year. No one does.

      Cons

      The Registry of Charitable Trusts Management doesn’t ever fire or write anyone up, if you do well you will do your work and others. People literally sleep at their desk all day. Managers are told about it and if you are the one to complain to them they get mad at you. Won’t ever enforce any type of work ethics policy EVER! Constantly going thru our desks when we leave. Want to promote then I’d advise keeping ur head down...
