I have been working at UC Irvine full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

UC Irvine has a strong computational chemistry program with research groups covering a wide range from electronic structure to biological and atmospheric applications.

Cons

Southern California can disguise the passing of time, 2 years are quickly gone. Moreover, one has to get out of Irvine. Buy car, go to LA. Sleep and work at UCI, go anywhere else for social/cultural life.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

    I worked at UC Irvine part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The students are, by and large, earnest and hard-working. I really loved the ethnic diversity of the student body (primarily Asian-American).

    Cons

    No convenient office space for lecturers or TAs, growing enrollments, lack of organized teaching resources in some departments and programs.

    Advice to Management

    The UC administration needs to get its priorities straight--Invest more $ in instruction and hire more faculty. Stop expecting students to pay more in tuition for less and less interaction with faculty, crowded classes, fewer library resources, etc.
