Enterprise Architect

"The State of California suffers from utilising a 60 year old mainframe with a series of retrofit emulations. The users are accustomed to working with key strokes to do their job and are unionised. State workers work in an inverse culture that suffers from exclusiveness rather than inclusive unconscious bias. These are the challenges I take on willingly and unselfishly."

Corrections Officer

"I worked as a Corrections Officer for the last 15 years and experienced high levels of management and multi-tasking in a stressful environment. Prior to this role, I was in the high tech industry for over 20 years in the production, inventory control, and supply chain areas. I would welcome the opportunity to get back into it, as I truly miss the environment."

Custodian

"These guys don't know what they're doing. Po?PCH & provider change every hour. There is not one professional adult who knows how to handle the work load. They have no support system or give any kind of appreciation to staff. They are very adamant about not believing inmates' word but yet believe anything from anybody except their own staff. There is too much backstabbing people who enjoy watching others struggle. They never have enough supplies but yet expect work to be up to code. I was hired on as a custodian, told to sign paperwork as custodial supervisor and completed job descriptions of a superintendent. Then scolded for doing so and told we are not supervisors. Then told we are supervisors. But do not get supervisors pay. The work doesn't comply with job duties of a custodian. I sent that fraud to put an ad and hire employees as custodian but assigned duties that don't match and be underlayer. Oh yes, most important is not providing proper training to fit the location of employment... and so much more. These guys need to be audited because crook is short for crooked. Cal PIA/HFM is the most unorganized, stressful waste of the state's money. Nothing is done by the book that they strongly enforce."

"I've worked for them for a couple of years and I like the company, you're caring for someone that needs the help. I used to make meals three times a day, take her to her appointments and make sure she takes her meds on time and if there were days she couldn't do for herself I would do for her and so woke her up the days she needed her treatment."

Associate Governmental Program Analyst

"The State of California is a secure entity and provides a diverse opportunity for those who can relocate to Sacramento. As for the attainment of promotions in any other city, the opportunities are limited due to the policies of old which favor governance from a center (Capitol) instead of global diversion."

"Having come from the private sector, the state is a whole different animal in that it seems that people do the minimum work they are required. I much prefer the private sector."
