Career Center Rocks

Career Counselor (Current Employee)
Riverside, CA

I have been working at UC Riverside

ProsSince implementing specialty groups in the office - employer relations, counseling and special events - the cohesion and productivity of our team is awesome. Management also promotes professional growth for each employee to encourage expertise compatible with our interests. The Career Center is recognized and revered on campus, which management makes a point to share and celebrate with us, contributing to a sense of pride in our office. Appreciate the amount of creativeness in the team members in our office. Love the feedback from students when they are successful in their career goals as a result of my and the colleagues' efforts.

ConsEvening programming can erode work/life balance, but assignments are pretty equitably distributed among the team. Frustrated with the process of getting vacation and offtime approved. Don't prefer the public speaking aspect, about a third of my job, but have utilized technology and company professionals to assist.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to capitalize on the strengths of your employees and facilitate their growth and expertise in those areas to benefit the university. New Chancellor Timothy P. White is doing a great job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
