Chief Engineer (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 22, 2017
San Jose State has over 3,000 employees across many diverse departments. My experience has been in one of these departments only so it does not represent all of the departments. I have had great experiences at SJSU, but it has not been all glamorous. If you are looking for a steady career with great benefits, this is a great place to work. Since it is a governmental facility and many people have a say in the way things are done, it can be frustrating at times to get projects moving. This does not make it a bad place to work though, there are some great people doing great things that make things rewarding.

Associate Professor (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 4, 2017
Generally, the coworkers were friendly, depending on the department you work, and if lucky, you might receive a load as high as 7 classes per semester as an adjunct of associate professor. However, you have to work 3 consecutive semesters to receive any benefits beyond a mandated retired Savings Plus retirement program. If you work summers, there is a high probability that the departmental secretary will not submit the vouchers needed to ensure that you will get paid by the college because they will suddenly go on vacation of sudden sick leave and no one in Human Resources or the Union will have any idea that you are working. To make a long story short, CSU San Jose has a major problem with communication between departments, I learnt that they will not be available in any department when it comes to issues important to their employees. The culture is "you are on your own" and even after great evaluations, expect to have 2 semesters of work and be cut loose and expected to apply later on for more work. This habit is to restrict paying benefits, and the hardest part of the job ensuring that you get paid when promised and securing future work.
