Not A Good Place to Work (Current Employee)
Davis, CA

I have been working at UC Davis

ProsGood benefits as pertaining to vacation, sick leave-pension has been good but they are making changes to reduce that.

ConsUnqualified managers and supervisors in many departments. Childish game playing on many levels. The level of favoritism and nepotism is appalling. Very unprofessional environment. Also the University is in mass layoff mode, but the bulk of those being targeted for layoffs are those not in a special clique with these unqualified manager/supervisors. Lots of dirty tricks going on to make safe jobs of "pets", including promoting them to a higher grade to protect lower grade sections being laid off-even though they do no more work or are not even qualified. They are giving them raises and promotions while laying off other competent individuals who aren't in the " in crowd", kind of sickening to watch.

Advice to Senior ManagementCorruption is not attractive and in the end it comes back to bite you-sooner or later. Cultivate a mature, qualified management/supervisory staff who think logically and with their brain not their emotions and school girl agenda.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I met lots of lovely people in the community and worked with fellow college students in an energetic atmosphere.

Campus Recreation Youth Programs, Camp Instructor (Former Employee)
Davis, CA

I worked at UC Davis


Pros: This review is specific to Campus Recreation's Youth Programs. The camps run for ten weeks of the summer, so are ideal for students. It's good… Cons: My student manager was a first-timer and still figuring out the job, so our year-end reviews were basically the only feedback… Advice to Senior Management: I'd have liked to see more feedback, like a mid-year evaluation instead of just the year-end meeting… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
