No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Grad office staff is great, career advising is great (at least while you're still a student). If your advisor is able to fund you as a GSR, you'll live comfortably enough. Food's available on campus, and parking's free on weekends (for now).

Cons

Allocation of resources (like office space) varies heavily from department to department. In ours, you had to know which offices were available and ask for them, because the department wasn't keeping track well enough to hand them out.

Advice to Management

One reason there's little alumni engagement is because their last memory is the exceedingly picky process of formatting the thesis. Is it the end of the world if the page numbers are in slightly the wrong position?
