    I have been working at UC Davis (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment and benefits.

    Cons

    If your position becomes represented, don't expect a promotion. The union wants your monthly dues and will not work in your favor. Some people might not like a politically liberal environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow a good employee to become represented. You will lose talented and once loyal employees this way.

    I worked at UC Davis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    nice campus, pension program plus 403B, generous sick leave

    Cons

    unstable funding future, layoffs, favoritism and nepotism among management. After being employed for over 8 years by the University, who lack dignity, I was forced into taking a layoff during a reduction in force, in which I held seniority over many other employees... Why you may ask?? Favoritism, management pulled strings to protect their personal friends in the department who had half the seniority. They took a loyal, faithful, hardworking employee and traded that to save pals who worked for them who called in sick whenever they got 8 hours accrued.... When it comes down to it, union backing or not, they can do away with you for whatever, whenever... An employee who not only VOLUNTEERED countless hours to training, PR, but one who had NEVER received even a verbal warning, who had stellar annual performance reviews who had a total of 5 sick calls in over 8 years, and one who knew and LOVED the job.... Your loss UCD..

    Pros

    generous sick leave and holidays

    Cons

    Hostile culture and extremely poor management
     The corporate culture at the UCD is very much a yes sir, how high do you want me to jump atmosphere. There is a great divide between the managers and the average employees, or as one of the top management put it "the lowly people". They seem to put people in management positions when they have no people skills and aren't able to communicate to other employees. Favortism is also a huge problem.UCD does not treat you with respect or professionalism. If you are looking for a position where you enjoy going to work everyday, where your opinion is valued, and your hard work is appreciated, avoid UCD If you have other options, take them.
