    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at UC San Diego full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    UCSD functions as a small city, and has to comply with a slew of regulatory agencies to maintain all their hazardous materials permits in compliance. They provide you with so much training that will really help in building your resume. Most jobs within EH&S are half in-office and half in the field, so there is a great deal of flexibility in your schedule which I always loved.

    Cons

    Having an opportunity to be promoted will take a long time (5 years with no promotion in my case). It is difficult if not impossible to be "promoted" but positions do open up that will allow you to reach for higher pay by applying for a higher level position when there are vacancies.
