    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Caltrans full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    While at Caltrans you are afforded the opportunity to explore the many different aspect of right of way and real estate in general. Agents are often given a degree of discretion that is not found in the private sector. The employees at Caltrans are great - everybody is willing to help out whenever necessary.

    Cons

    income for Right of Way Agents at Caltrans lags behind similar positions with other private and governmental entities. Also, the union that you are required to join mostly represents general labor positions which weakens your position when it is time to negotiate.

    Pros

    Best reason to work here is mobility. You never need to get bored unless you choose to. Many divisions to rotate through and learn. Job security.

    Cons

    It's a total different mindset from the private industry. You will need to adjust. Salary increases are slow and it is below the current market.

    I have been working at Caltrans

    Pros

    It allowed me to raise a family in a beautiful area of California (redwoods, coast, mountains) with a decent salary and benefits. My work with the public and co-workers is satisfying for the most part. I am just a short way from retirement.

    Cons

    Some of the middle-management are not so competent. In the last ten years a lot of the environmental regulating agencies and new laws involving eminent domain are making work a lot more difficult and less satisfying. A lot of it is a horrid waste of time and public money.
