    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Large campus, many resources
    Many research opportunities
    Professors try their best to help students be successful in their projects
    Health care system is excellent for graduate student insurance

    Cons

    Can have unnecessary politics in office situations including pleasing professors over needs of students. You can get lost in the system due to the large school size, standing out is important.

    Advice to Management

    For advising office, please make sure to research the classes you are assigning graduate students to teach. Placing graduate students in classes in their field gives much better results in terms of undergraduate education.
