    I have been working at CAL POLY full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Living on the California Central Coast with ideal climates, and work being only 5.2 miles from my home.

    Cons

    Due to our states failing economy, the staff at Cal Poly have not received a cost of living raise in over 4.5 years. Looming in the future for staff and faculty, is the possibility of a permanent 10% reduction in pay!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out of the academic politics.

    I don't like paying for parking. There haven't been and raises due to the state budget and there are unions.
