    I have been working at State of California Office of Statewide Health Planning full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The staff really does work together as a team! The atmosphere is positive and the work we do is important for keeping Californians healthy and safe.

    Cons

    Nothing that isn't a problem at most state offices -- budget issues, sometimes convoluted bureaucracy

    MORE TRAINING. And more funds for training!

    I have been working at State of California Office of Statewide Health Planning full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been with OSHPD for over a decade and it's still the office that feels like home. Supportive management, pleasant coworkers, and an environment that's both professional and comfortable -- we're here to get work done, but that doesn't have to be an unbearable chore.

    Cons

    Upward mobility could use a boost.

    Pros

    Supportive management, many promotional opportunities through the state, excellent benefits, reasonably relaxed work environment, good location downtown, very fair hiring/promotion process

    Can be a boring place to work, little promotional opportunity within the department, sometimes strict rules, moving to Natomas soon, very high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    Hire fewer overqualified candidates to keep good employees from promoting out of the department so quickly. Allow people to telecommute or very flexible schedules.

    I have been working at State of California Office of Statewide Health Planning full-time

    Pros

    goals, mission, purpose. I think that the work we do is important and our programs haved helped many.

    Cons

    Being friendly to the managers is your ticket to getting promoted and most of the time, there are more qualified people. Experience and reliability does not count for much these days. They hire young people right out of college with no experience. They promote people who use foul language daily and who are never talked to. I tried to say something once to the manager when this one person was so loud for over an hour. What I was told, they have been dealing with a system that is frustrating and needed to blow off steam. This is a paraphrase. I would never act like that but then I am not the manager's pet.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the people you hire.
