    I have been working at UC Riverside part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very Supportive Staff. By far, most faculty have been sensitive to the demands of balancing TA-ships, class loads, writing and family responsibilities. Salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    At times, late notice on TA and Instructor assignments. Occasionally a Professor will show themselves insensitive to TA workloads.

    UC Riverside has been growing in a positive, diverse direction, and it definitely shows in its ability to attain a diverse workforce. The unique office culture where everyone connects to another in one way or another makes UCR a wonderful place to work!

    Cons

    The rigid rules of the state and federal government are slightly restricting, but expected from public universities.

    Allow employees the freedom to discuss what they believe will move UCR even more towards the goals.
