Pros: amazing work culture.
Working for the University of California in Irvine was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, based on the people that I worked with, and the work-culture at the Institute for Clinical & Translational Science (ICTS).
My work days were varied: some days I spent more time on purchasing/reimbursement issues, and other days the focus was more on meetings, and problem solving related to scheduling and making arrangements for events, etc.
My co-workers were a helpful and easy-going group; everyone had an excellent sense of humor and kindness about them.
The most difficult portion of the job was juggling the Director's meetings and events as sometimes things did not go as planned, and occasionally, apologies would have to be made to persons of high rank.
The most enjoyable portion of the job was simply belonging to a team whereby everyone could be counted on as a friend.
