CalPERS is a great place to work for anyone interested in corporate governance. They also have a fantastic building complex with trees, waterfalls and other features. I used to work in the building myself for many years, although not for CalPERS. It was great to be able to take a quick break, walking around the beautiful building with its peaceful pathways through gardens. I also used to jog around Southside Park with a prior General Council. CalPERS has locker rooms, gourmet cafeteria and plenty of features to make work more pleasant. No, it isn’t Google, but for a state agency, you couldn’t ask for better.
