No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

As a scientist, UCSD has wonderful resources to carry out a variety of scientific research. UCSD has many labs at the forefront of my research area as well as many others. The location of UCSD is terrific as well, with beautiful coastal living or more urban living, some of which can be affordable.

Cons

Academia in general is a challenging endeavor. Though this environment has all the trappings of a terrific job, it is still at the whims of general academia and is not immune to the national troubles in funding scientific research.

Advice to Management

The turn-over in non-academic administration seems really high, and often the academics find themselves in situations where administration either does not know how to submit a particular grant, knows the requirements, or makes mistakes.
