    I worked at Continuing Education of the Bar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Affiliation with UC provides outstanding benefits, including retirement pension if you stay long enough. The people are nice, intelligent, and passionate. Commute is extremely easy - 3 blocks from BART.

    Cons

    The executive leadership is all new within the last 2 years and seems to be finding digital transformation difficult. As a self-supporting non-profit, expenses are exceeding profits and involuntary layoffs have begun. Salaries are already low by industry standards and there are limited opportunities for advancement without applying for an entirely different position. The bureaucracy of the UC system slows everything down, from recruiting to routine purchasing.

    Advice to Management

    In order to allow agile digital transformation, consider breaking or bending the ties with UC. You can't implement rapid digital change if it takes 2 to 6 months to approve purchasing software.

    Interview

    I received a phone call less than 24 hours after applying for this job. I agreed to a phone interview the following day. The interview went very well. I was told I would be emailed the UC benefits right away and that the process takes 30 days. Two weeks later I had hears nothing and received no email. I finally called and she apologized and then sent the benefits. I was told I would hear more by the end of the week.
