Worst professional experience ever.
Payed Inmate (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 27, 2016
If you're the motivated, proactive sort who strives for excellence and has a desire to create a positive change for the better in your work environment, this agency, and in particular life on the 5th floor, is not for you. Competency is viewed as a threat to management and if you're an accomplished professional with high expectations, you will likely be run out of the revolving door in an unpleasant and unprofessional manner.
The inflated salaries and exceptional benefits quickly lose their allure when you realize that no matter how efficient you are in completing your work during normal business hours, it will be purposely bottle-necked by management in order to manufacture excuses to hold personnel over after hours, sometimes even forcing them to come in on weekends. It would be one thing if it was actually necessary but it's all a charade designed to create the appearance of a heavy workload where none exists.
If you can handle an oppressive work environment and enjoy being micromanaged on a level that's the stuff of a network sit-com, go for it. If this isn't you, run in the other direction.
Exceptional pay and benefits.
Oppressive and dysfunctional work environment.
