    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.


  2. "Excellent education if you know what you want to do."

    Very Agriculture-centered, lots of trucks and cowboys (which may not be a con at all...)

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