    Processing home loans are antiquated for the professors and senior management. Management has not been on board in the outside lending world. Things have changed!

    I have been working at University of California - Office of the President full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Laid back. Easy. Stable. Great benefits. This is great for people who would like to get experience and who just want to work and get their paycheck on pay day.

    Cons

    To get the job, you would need to overqualify for the position even though it does not require a college degree. There are people who hold master degrees and are in low positions. It is almost impossible to get promoted or transferred to a different department.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t judge your employees on paper. Get to meet them in person and learn about their career goals. Listen to your employees’ aspirations and care for them, so they can care about you and contribute to the growth of your organization, otherwise the good employees will start to leave.

    I have been working at University of California - Office of the President full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Commute benefits and close to BART. Work with smart people who are proud to represent the University of California. 8 hour work day

    Cons

    Morale is terrible because of the dysfunctional leadership team. Too many goals set up and insufficient support, funding, and prioritization to complete them. Management's answer from the top is "figure it out".

    Advice to Management

    Titles matter too much. Let the staff get the work done, and help them by clearing the roadblocks. Don't just push the work back down to the staff when they are asking for help.

      Pros

      Great potential to grow and learn if you are willing to open your mind. I read the review of the other benefits associate reviewer. It is a shame he/she felt that way. Education is just part of one's potential. I feel UCPath does provide opportunities for those that work hard and demonstrate by action. As far as snitching. it wouldnt be snitching unless one was doing something wrong. From my perspective, this team works...

      Cons

      Politics. Integrity of senior leadership is severely lacking and they are non supportive.

      Advice to Management

      Stop valuing behavior that encourages bully tactics and disrespect. Value employees for their experience not only their education.
