Negative Outlook

I worked at CAL POLY full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Campus is a positive environment. Working at a university can be like its own community and can be a very nice place to work. This university was that way years ago.

Cons

The evolution of poor management, marked lack of ethics on the part of management and individuals promoting to positions beyond their abilities has has created a very negitive and toxic work environment.

Advice to Management

Start hiring off campus people for upper management positions. Individuals that started at the universty as a file clerk have no business in personnel management just because they have worked at the university for 10 years. If they have not been availing themselves of the educational benefits of the university, they are still just qualified as a file clerk. Hmmmm.

    Not much you can do, but hope California stops being horrible with its money.

    I have been working at CAL POLY full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Living on the California Central Coast with ideal climates, and work being only 5.2 miles from my home.

    Cons

    Due to our states failing economy, the staff at Cal Poly have not received a cost of living raise in over 4.5 years. Looming in the future for staff and faculty, is the possibility of a permanent 10% reduction in pay!

    Advice to Management

    Stay out of the academic politics.
