    Pros

    Teaching at UCSC is a joy--the students are curious, creative, and eager to think outside the box, though they may also question your authority and challenge your assumptions (as they have been trained to do), but as long as you don't mind fielding some tough questions, it's worth it. I especially enjoyed working with the growing population of first generation students and transfer students in the undergraduate program.

    Cons

    Each year that I taught at UCSC, the students paid more and got less from the university as the entire UC shifts towards a corporatized model of public education. Meanwhile, the services staff, GSIs, and adjunct instructors were repeatedly at a loggerheads with campus and university leadership over basic rights, benefits, and fair pay, which of course, takes away from just trying to do one's job.

    Advice to Management

    Put the students' and staff's welfare back into the vision of what a thriving university looks like, instead of investing in constant "growth" and ever-growing administrative salaries.
