Pros

UC Irvine has a strong computational chemistry program with research groups covering a wide range from electronic structure to biological and atmospheric applications.

Cons

Southern California can disguise the passing of time, 2 years are quickly gone. Moreover, one has to get out of Irvine. Buy car, go to LA. Sleep and work at UCI, go anywhere else for social/cultural life.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great campus, interesting environment, tuition benefits.

    Cons

    Managers with no management or "real-world" experience control their territory jealously, play favorites and are disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who have been tested in the private sector, not people who run their departments like a medieval court.
