Wonderful students, petty leadership.

ProsAs a teacher you can be proud to work for the best public university in the U.S.

ConsThe students are a mixed lot. California secondary schooling has steadily declined over the last thirty years. At the same time, the UC system lowered its standards to boost enrollment numbers. You meet and teach some wonderfully talented students, but both faculty and students are weighed down by the 30-35% of pupils who are not prepared for university study.

Advice to Senior ManagementShrink the size of student body. The Cal State system and Community Colleges provide a better educational grounding for below average students. Deregulate the bloated levels of management, and outsource all IT functions.
