I worked at UC Davis full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of potential freedom in terms of time (vacations) if you plan things right.

Cons

The graduate student researcher pay scale is based on seemingly arbitrarily set levels, so a graduate student in one group/department can get paid way more than a graduate student in another.

Advice to Management

Even out the pay scale for graduate students, and increase based on number or years (to an certain extent), rather than per department. It's not fair.

    I have been working at UC Davis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits here are unmatched. You schedule can be flexible and the unions give employees some sense of job security.

    Cons

    There are a lot of angry, grumpy, jaded people working here that make communication and team work difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people who don't appreciate their jobs.

    I have been working at UC Davis part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Determined and friendly environment. Employer is reasonable with work time and break time, gives enough work and reward to employees. Very social work environment and culture.

    Cons

    Office Assistant job is very demanding, with long hours and lots of stress. The pay deserves to be a bit higher.

    Advice to Management

    Salary could maybe use a dollar or two increase.
