    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Shrink 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.

    Pros

    respected research institution that keeps faculty motivated to be current in their particular fields.

    Cons

    a boatload of beaurocracy and having to fight for respect, especially from faculty of color

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to and respect faculty opinion, and try not to be so chicanerous in your administrative duties
