    I have been working at UC Santa Cruz part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at the Stevenson Event Center at UC Santa Cruz because I go to school here and it is super convenent, it is a beautiful campus, and has dedicated students, friendly and motivating staff, diversity of events, and a wonderful small-town feel. I have become very good friends with everyone I work with including the rest of residential life staff around Stevenson College. My work hours are flexible, the office is a safe and comfortable place to be in, and the events that we work are always exciting!

    Cons

    The only con is that parking on campus is limited (just like any other college). Good thing they make the bus system so easy to use!

    Advice to Management

    To be as organized and amicable as always!

    I worked at UC Santa Cruz full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    stable, structured, slow-pace, get in, do your job and get out, if you like policies and being told exactly how to do something, this is the place for you. Most colleagues are solid, decent folks but there are a few particularly prickly old dinosaurs.

    Cons

    stable, structured, slow-pace, get in, do your job and get out, too many policies and little growth opportunity. Most colleagues are solid, decent folks but there are a few particularly prickly old dinosaurs who want to play the political game. All the systems are outdated and ineffective, a hindrance actually. Salary is barely minimum wage. Increases are minimal, 2-3% or 5% if you're a superstar. Benefits are regular medical, dental, vision, 403b - good but nothing special.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times and pay your hardworking people a decent wage.
