Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee), San Diego, CA – November 19, 2014
Pros: good location
Good place to work, good benefits, but low pay for the work you do. It's great if you get a true staff position and do not have to depend on soft money. Lots collaboration between departments, so you can always get help on a project if you need it.
UCSD ranks very low for Safety by anyone's standards
Principal Electronics Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CA – November 17, 2014
Cons: inadequate safety hazards assessment, and "head in the sand" attitude of management towards safety issues.
While it is common knowledge, among those who take interest in workplace safety, that Higher Education, in general lacks the mechanisms and processes to adequately provide proper safety rules and training to employees, as evidenced and written about for the past several years. At UCLA, a few years ago, the untimely death of a young worker in a lab fire – more... "accident" made headlines. UC's management has yet to accept responsibility for these preventable "accidents", and the responsible parties have been given an effective "wrist slap" after 5 years of litigation. UCSD continues to pay lip service to Safety Issues, especially in the small "projects" in which the manager is not required to abide by any safety rules or best practices, and in many cases project managers refuse to even assess workplace hazards. This continuing problem is deeply rooted and cultural and systemic, because managers are not required to utilize EH&S expertise or to obtain training on safety management and responsibilities. This is why UC workers and students continue to die in preventable "accidents" – less
