I have been working at University of California - Office of the President full-time (More than 5 years)
For the last few years, new IT management has come in and they're making changes that are more visible and consistent across the organization. Finally someone with the desire to make IT better.
I like what they're doing - shaking things up slightly. Changing things. They are trying to keep up to date on tech and sometimes people need to be kept up to date as well. Either train and learn something new, or get left behind.
I see some long time UC employees move on because of this. While I don't like to see my colleagues leave, in the end, it's good for everyone and the company.
Good IT management.
Bad behavior is tolerated. I don't know why people who dislike their position or role at UCOP stay. Just leave and find a place that will make you happier. Don't drag me down because you don't like it here. Those who are so negative about this place should leave, rather than make everyone around you hear your complaining. Take some personal responsibility.
Advice to Management
Keep making changes from the "old way" and move towards the 20th century. It's the only way to continue turning this ship around.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of California - Office of the President (Oakland, CA) in October 2016.
Initial interview process went well, and they hired me for a temporary position while they worked out the particulars on the permanent position. Their reasoning was that it's easier to get in doing temp, since their hiring process is so long and drawn out. I have been here nearly two months and haven't gotten an update about my permanent position status, even though I am aware that they have have a couple meetings to assess my status and job performance. As I am already fully integrated into the position, I do not understand what more there could be to deliberate.
