    I worked at UC Santa Barbara full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, pay is steady, and there's a ton to do (access to classes, HR training, etc). Amazing culture of healthy, balanced living. They really want to keep you for your whole career.

    Cons

    Management completely varies by department. Professors are overworked with administrative duties and are often difficult personalities to work under.

    Advice to Management

    Winding up in a well-managed department is everything. I appreciated the encouragement to take HR courses, look at roles in other departments, and climb the ladder.
