    I have been working at UC Davis as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some very fine faculty, true professionals who work hard to do the best for their students and who treat adjuncts with respect. There are many bright students. The campus is attractive. If you are in the hard sciences, tech, or agriculture, like small, cute university towns, and a mild climate, this university might work well for you.

    Cons

    In 11 years of teaching at 4 institutions, I have never elsewhere encountered such administrative bloat, intrusion and resulting mismanagement and misplaced priorities. Liberal Arts and humanities faculties function with a poorly funded library, aging facilities, over-large classes and curtailed janitorial services (faculty have no phones, buy their own office supplies, clean their own offices), and compete with administration for office space. Adjuncts are particularly ill-used, with assurance of office space or even guaranteed parking.

    Advice to Management

    You need an efficiency study for management. You could easily eliminate 50% of your administration, freeing up resources and funds for faculty and students. A case study of San Francisco State might be very informative. They do much more, with much less.
