    I worked at Caltrans full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Online training friendliness experience IT staff

    Cons

    During the panel interview, senior planners said the assignment involved maintenance only. Job offer arrived 7-mo. after the interview and involved a capital improvement ending in lawsuit. I was assigned to a supervisor with <6.mo. at supervising who said not to ask questions. She didn't invite me to group meetings either and said I missed a deadline, but IT said she didn't give permissions so I could use their database. Professional planning ethics aren't supported neither were pursuing AICPA designation.

    I have been working at Caltrans full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefit package. Flexibility. Retirement compensation. At 20 years-you can retire and get your medical insurance fully paid. If you consider that benefit could amount to $1500 in pre tax benefits-you’ll understand why people’s stay here when the place is full of bottom feeders and lacks modern technology

    Cons

    Hostile creepy people in some departments. Lack of technology, wages are 30-40% below private sector. Org is run like mafia. Filthy building, consultants try to compete for your work, no advancement.

    Pros

    Can contribute to large and interesting transportation projects while protecting natural and cultural resources.

    Cons

    No staff retainment and a hostile management style by top supervisors made a sad work environment.
