Current Employee - Research Analyst

Pros

The benefit is great, and the employee relationships are wonderful.
Depending on which department a person works in, things may vary.

Cons

Very little salary increase and facing budget cut soon.
There is a great uncertainty about the upcoming pay cuts and they way they are doing it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is wonderful, but perhaps a little more education on how to advance in this organization.
More mentorship is appreciated

    Pros

    The University of California offers a great reputation as a uality institution. Serves community. Leading research institution.

    Cons

    Poor pay scale; bureaucratic environment, unhealthy and cramped working conditions. It is dependent upon the state budget for much of its funding, and the state of California is cutting even the most essential functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Budget should be less oriented toward physical expansion and more toward improving quality of staff and staff morale through better working conditions, more support staff, and pay scale that matches employers of similar specialists and experts to attract and retain top quality employees.
    Cultivate more solid ongoing sources of funding, addressing a broader range of patient and research categories.
    Work on government relations both in Sacramento and Washington, DC to get on the inside track re new funding opportunities.
    Look at Harvard as a model.
