    Former Employee - Programmer/Analyst in Irvine, CA

    I worked at UC Irvine full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid place with benefits and pension. It is also an established and well developed hr program with training and development to help anyone move forward. Also, if a specific job at the university does not work out, there are many departments on campus that may work better.

    Cons

    It is reliant on state budgets and tuition. The state has had some hard times and as a result there always exists the chance of budget cuts affection specific departments. There are also some who work there who are just waiting to retire and are not motivated to develop or grow, their lack of motivation can become contagious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to reduce the presence of unions on campus and help develop more incentives for people to stretch beyond their current skills.

    Pros

    UC Irvine is a good research university for the sciences. There are plenty of opportunities to collaborate. I personally worked in the Physics department and had collaborations in the Chemistry department. If you are going for Physics definitely check out the ChAMP program, which is available for Chemistry, Engineering, and Physics students. Also, the campus is beautiful, the weather is great, and there are beaches, mountains, and city life (LA) nearby.

    Cons

    I can't think of a good con. Overall, I had a great experience.
