    Very relaxed work environment, but as with any higher ed institute, expect bureaucracy

    Pros

    Working at UC Davis, I've found you get out what you put in — it can be a great place to learn new technologies and implement industry best practices if you take the initiative to make it happen. There are constantly new projects to work on and you can be sure these projects have an impact as UC Davis is often involved with cutting-edge research that improve quality of life around the world.

    Cons

    It's incredibly difficult getting promotions or re-classed. Bureaucracy is rampant — projects often take much longer than you would expect anywhere else in the industry. Also, expect to be paid much less than elsewhere in the industry, although benefits are great especially if you have a family.

    Pros

    Good benefits, casual environment, nice area.

    Cons

    Government job so it feels like you're mired in concrete.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to actually accomplish things.
