A good school with a focus on usable skills

Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsIn the computer science department there were many decent professors, sometimes with industry experience. Standards were generally high with a focus on software engineering. If you passed the upper division software classes this is a pretty good indication that you are ready for industry. My experience as a (paid) teaching assistant for the computer science department ($10/hr) was hardly worth it financially did at least give me some insight and experience and connections that proved very valuable in the long run.

ConsBudget issues cause problems with obtaining necessary resources or offering as full a range of classes as would be ideal. Other departments outside of Computer Science and Engineering suffer from a range of issues, including quality and lack of ability to offer students individual attention. Rising tuition mean that San Francisco State is becoming less of a good deal as time goes on.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
