    Former Employee - Physics Research Laboratory Manager in Hayward, CA

    Pros

    The community of excellence within the physics department offers an environment that promotes best-practices and individual potential expansion. Once in the door there is active help to attain achievements.

    Cons

    There is limited room for promotion due to size of physics department. It is a small department within a large organization. This means great personal attention and support, but also means that there is little room at the top.

    Resident Assistant at CSU East Bay Student Housing and Residence

    • Work/Life Balance

    Former Employee - Resident Assistant  in  Hayward, CA
    Former Employee - Resident Assistant in Hayward, CA

    Pros

    Fun - it's really fun to work with the Housing especially if you assign in one of the newer building. It's very clean and spacious. You always work there as a team and most of the work requires a lot of collaboration. The people there are great and leaders on their own field.

    Free Housing- Yes, housing cost is high. You save a lot of money by living in one of the room for free.
    Free food- it's a buffet style in the dining common. You go there for free and eat all you can. I actually lost weight while working there.
    You learn to lead, get organize and manage your time.

    Cons

    Less time for personal leisure, very demanding work, burn out, and can negatively affect your GPA.
    Also, it's sucks when you have a lot of room mates especially if yu assign in the freshmen building though, the room is new and clean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. There is a recent change in leadership so I can't make an honest comment. Provide more time off for RAs.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Hayward, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hayward, CA

    Pros

    There's a small community of fellow employees who really care about the quality of education that students receive, and work together to provide such services, in the face of ludicrous budget cuts and staffing shortages. I did have my own office, which was nice, as opposed to being stuck in a cubicle.

    Cons

    Again... budget cuts. Lots of typical disgruntled state workers/lifers who will in no shape or form go out of their way to help anyone (staff or student). The only way you'll advance to a new position is if someone retires. The buildings and infrastructure are generally dismal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your staff. Make the employee discounts for courses easier to attain. Acquire computers/hardware for your departments that are state of the art.

    The glass ceiling

    Current Employee - Decline to State in Hayward, CA

    Pros

    The location is convenient. The richness and diversity of the campus is great. I love working with the students and what I do. Also, the benefits are good.

    Cons

    It's the state of CA. Can't remember last time we had a raise. There is a glass ceiling in the field, and an enormous gap between support services and the administration.
    People in our positions at Community Colleges make more than we do at the University, and we work year round.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to those below you. We are the ones who make you look good. Try not to have everyone sprinting at the last minute to put out fires that should have been prepared for.
