    Pros

    UCSD has a supportive work environment, motivated researchers, and is an excellent academic school. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    There doesn't seem to be a lot of organization in training for teaching. The grad students in my department were given exactly 6 hours of training over the course of a year, so the day they started teaching classes they had only 2 hours of teacher training under their belts. Not enough prep for the working environment. Tons of focus on research detracts from a quality teaching environment.


  2. Would not trade this experience for anything!

    Pros

    Wonderful Staff and students - great contribution to the San Diego Community and beyond. State of the art research and medical care. No age discrimination whatsoever! Young and old all working together...very refreshing!

    Cons

    Huge cost to park on campus - contract and temporary employees not interviewed before being placed on assignment

    Advice to Management

    More communication to staff
