    I have been working at California Maritime Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place for hands-on engineering training. Lots of classes involve working with and understanding real machinery such as: 13,600 bhp main engines, boilers, distillers, pumps, etc.

         Extremely high job placement rate in careers RELEVANT to the major. Very easy to net jobs paying upwards of $90k in an entry level position with low (~2.5) GPAs for engineering majors.

    Cons

    Very hard to get off campus housing, being in the Corps of Cadets requires formation attendance, lots of bureaucracy and drama in the Corps.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized and transparent with required events. An email the day of a for an event "required" for graduation is unacceptable.
