If you want to get ahead, don't stay in one position on campus more that 3 years

Pros

Being part of a system that can help the Bay Area and in many cases the world a better place.

Cons

Low pay and years of no raises or cut backs.
Continuing to foster an Us vs. Them mentality between Faculty/Upper Management and staff.
System rife with favoratism within departments. Friends helping friends. Some carrying a huge workload and others barely have work to do.

Advice to Management

Stop acting like what staff does can be done better by trained chimps. What we do is not easy add dealing with HUGE egos of faculty without calling them on it daily takes a skill set. You get what you pay for, once the current crop of dinosaurs is gone..me included your in for a rude awakening.

    Pros

    I thought the pay was very fair for an undergrad student tutoring in English language, the people in the department I worked for were very nice. I was able to set my own hours and just tutor one or two students at a time, which was very helpful as I had a full course load.

    Cons

    It's a gigantic campus so you tend to get lost in the shuffle of things paperwork-wise; make sure you follow up on paperwork/questions so they don't get pushed aside or lost...

    Advice to Management

    The department I worked for is a very small one, so this doesn't really apply
