Good opportunities for work, not many for advancement
Medical Physics Post Doctoral Researcher (Current Employee), Irvine, CAMay 27, 2015
The work is very exciting and relevant to the medical field. We have the opportunity design new diagnostic equipment/software. The management is more focused on the commercial aspect of the work, as such progress can be slow. Most of my colleagues have left because there is little chance to advance in the field here.

Best Job ive had, Independent Work, Both Fun and Productive
Maintance Worker (Former Employee), Irvine, CAMay 10, 2015
Pros: Lived on campus for a week
Cons: Short lunch breaks
We actually had the opportunity to stay on campus for the time period of the job. My group and i would wake up at 8, pick up cleaning utilities, such as degreaser, mops, ect, and we would get a list of 6 dorm room 1-4 bedrooms each. Hard Work but the experience and pay was all worth it

Great company to work at
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Irvine, CAApril 21, 2015
I really enjoy working at this organization. Sadly, I am only contractual so I have to leave the company soon. I wish I could have stayed longer.

My colleagues are great to work with. My bosses are flexible with my schedule since I attend grad school full time as well. They are very supportive with my education so that is something I am very grateful for. I could not have finished my first year of grad school if they weren't emphatic with my situation.

UC
Hardware Digital Desgin (Former Employee), Irvine, CAApril 2, 2015
The environment of UCI is great but the cost on rental is super expensive around. About classes, professors aren't that helpful because there are just some many students. So it is up to the student, he or she has to spend a lot of their personal time in study toward successful.

Graduate Student Researcher (Current Employee), Irvine, CAMarch 27, 2015
Pros: flexible working schedule; high quality courses
Cons: relatively low income than full time job at industry
As a graduate student researcher, my typical day is a composition of advanced courses, research and paper writing, communication with professors and chatting with other PhDs. The best part of the work is that we have the chance to meet with excellent researchers and get inspired by them everyday. The most enjoyable part of the work is there are two Starbucks on campus.

Great employee to work with. I have learned a lot of new skills and coordination, learned how to deal and support cancer patient, the hardest part of the job when I lose any of our patient after being working and helping them through their disease process. The most enjoyable part of the job, working as a team work to assist and satisfied patient during their treatment.

Excellent place to work as a student.
Campus Telephone Operator (Former Employee), Irvine, CAJune 4, 2014
Pros: stress-free work, decent pay and hours, good management.
UCI is a great place to work part-time as a student. The pay is above minimum wage, the hours are generally flexible, and the management are always willing to work with students. Work is generally stress-free and often has a lot of downtime to allow for studying and assignment completion at work. Valuable skills and work experience are given to students while they finish their education, and some even go on to graduate and stay with the school for a career.
