    I worked at UC San Diego full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
