Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant  in  Davis, CA
Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Davis, CA

I worked at UC Davis full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Lots of potential freedom in terms of time (vacations) if you plan things right.

Cons

The graduate student researcher pay scale is based on seemingly arbitrarily set levels, so a graduate student in one group/department can get paid way more than a graduate student in another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Even out the pay scale for graduate students, and increase based on number or years (to an certain extent), rather than per department. It's not fair.

    I have been working at UC Davis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits here are unmatched. You schedule can be flexible and the unions give employees some sense of job security.

    Cons

    There are a lot of angry, grumpy, jaded people working here that make communication and team work difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the people who don't appreciate their jobs.
