The job is very high paste and busy
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAOctober 3, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: my plate always feels full
This job is very fast paste and stressful, the jobs entails you to do 3 or 4 things at one time. The days always fly by. You are dealing with CalPERS Board Members, and the Executive Management, every thing is always a priority, and my boss's calendar is always changing about meetings, travels arrangements, and crisis going on. There is no typical day. – more... I have learned to juggle all my balls in the air and to keep my boss informed constantly about what is going on in the office and what he needs to attends on meetings, conferences, seminars coming up. My co-workers are great at helping me out when I need help. The hardest part is walking away, when I need to take a break or lunch. The most enjoyable is when my boss says "Good Job" at the end of the day! – less

Direct customer service requiring detailed understanding of benefits
Retired reigional manager (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAAugust 22, 2012
Pros: great degree of autonomy. travel. public speaking. training employees
Cons: creating budgets. justifying positions.
CalPERS is the largest retirement system in the country with over $220 billion in assets. In my position (regional manager) I managed two office serving members and employers in 16 counties. My entire experience there was in San Francisco (headquarters in Sacramento.) The job provided me and my staffs with a high degree of autonomy and expertise in – more... all areas of CalPERS from investments to benefits. CalPERS was a great place to work and in my position, great variety in services and projects. I managed and served on project teams, including publications, presentations (live and video.) – less

California Public Employees Retirement System
Student Assistant (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 18, 2012
A typical day consisted of office work and document analysis. Some other responsibilities included making copies, working the front desk, answering calls, and running various errands for supervisors. I loved my co-workers and still miss them to this day.The most enjoyable part of working at CalPERS was definitely the co-workers and their vibrant personalities.
