Advice to Management

UCSD had very good reputation in science and engineering, but it starts to lose that now. I understand funding problem (from California state) is the main reason. UCSD should hire more lecturers for undergraduate students, so professors can focus on their research.

    Pros

    Nice campus, great coworkers. Good benefits. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Very easy for staff to get comfortable, stagnant, yet still ride the system and get promotions. Because of this there are a lot of staff who have been there a long time just "hanging out" in upper level positions. Hard to get a position, and limited upward mobility once you are hired, even with appropriate experience and education.
