      Pros

      You can tell a lot about an organization based on how they act when times are tough. Well this past year has been incredibly challenging and UCI has handled it about as well as possible. Stuck by their staff and students through it all. Can't speak highly enough about this incredible organization.

      Cons

      UCI is large and some units are better to work for than others. :)
