    I have been working at CAL POLY full-time

    Pros

    Working for Cal Poly is very enjoyable if you're looking for long-term career stability, work-life balance, and a chance to keep learning and polishing your skills as you work. Coworkers are generally friendly and respectful, and honest feedback and communication is encouraged. Lots of projects involve research and development into impact on the campus so you need to be self-motivated to learn new skill sets.

    Cons

    As a state university, promotions are infrequent and salary is not as competitive compared to the rest of the industry, which is an expected trade-off.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganization/restructuring happens once in a few years so be aware of changes in team dynamics and acceptance level of new changes.

    Pros

    Not any good pros to drive in on campus!

    Cons

    The campus police is too much! No where to stop on campus to drop off riders. A constant nagging of drivers and students.

    Make more drop off accessibility!! Give these people more to do than to be so forceful and rude.
