    A tight knit family is colleagues who I still miss a year later. Encouraging and inspiring environment.

Working for Student Housing was the best employment experience I've ever had thus far in my career.

    I worked at UC Davis part-time

    Pros

    Really good part time job while taking classes on UC Davis campus. It was a good work environment, and it paid really well!

    Cons

    Sometimes there are not consistent expectations across employees with the same title. Some employees are hard working, whereas others are blatantly lazy and it's kind of all the same to management. You're graded on how much the other employees like you because they have peer reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the peer reviews. They encourage pandering to coworkers instead of getting anything done.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Autonomy,
    - Always could find myself in enlightening discussions about teaching,
    - Workload wasn't too taxing. I mean this to specifically refer to the number of teaching hours. Elsewhere I've found the classroom hours to be more than double. This doesn't include any prep time, office hours, email communication with students, etc.

    Cons

    - No clear path to more permanent position
    - No good infrastructure for assessing the quality of your teaching other than student evaluations, which aren't always a thorough litmus. Since being rehired depends on this, your job is in the hands of student reporting.

    Advice to Management

    - Expand university assessment of teaching for teaching only faculty to be more thorough.

    Can get boring doing student work. Not trusted with much due to student status.
