Clinical Psychologist (Current Employee) – Represa, CA – June 23, 2017
CSP SAC no longer offers alternative schedules to new employees resulting in overworked employees, burned out employees and disparate treatment of those who cannot have the same benefits as other employees. No overtime pay and looked down upon if you work only 40 hours weekly.

It's a Government job working for the California Deptartment of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
Accountant Trainee / Accountant I (Current Employee) – Norco, CA – July 26, 2013
It's a great experience and I've learned alot in the positions I've held. I've experienced more cultures and different personality types here than in any other place of employment. The pay is not what I personally think it should be in comparison to the private sector, but it's working for the government, so the benefits are some what better. There are constant budget cuts within the department so the job security is not what it used to be.
