POSTDOCTORAL RESEACHER (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – October 10, 2017
Job environment is fairly nice. Health benefits are provided for all employee. Location is a huge plus for family because Irvine is one of the safest city in the US. However, housing prices including apartments are pretty high compared to LA cities.
PhD Candidate (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – September 26, 2017
Typical graduate school experience. Long hours, low pay, having to TA and take classes while only publications actually matter. Be careful in choosing your lab as they will have a lot of control over your progress.
Music Director (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – September 21, 2017
Being able to work with the Music Department at the University of California, Irvine was very rewarding. I learned a lot about the way programs are coordinated and managed. Everyone was for the most part very helpful when I had questions. Resources weren't always super available, but other that that, the hardest part was booking venues and times for concert and events for various choirs and coordinating that with the events calendar for the Music Department.
Development Coordinator, School of Social Sciences (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – August 29, 2017
I approach each day as a fun and exciting challenge.
On a given day I set priorities for the week, review progress of existing projects, check calendar to determine appointment for the upcoming week, meet with team to discuss pressing issues.”
While I didn’t receive any guidance or assistance, I was expected to work independently and this encouraged me to use my own initiative and trust my own ideas and judgement.
What I like best about my job is that a primary responsibility involves interacting with employees on all different levels of the organization and across all functional areas. I love that I get to learn new things about the company/business/market/etc everyday,
In sum, UCI is a positive workplace because it encourages treating one another with respect, gratitude, trust and integrity inspiring one another at work.
Pledge Service Vice President (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – August 23, 2017
Volunteer position, unpaid. Just had to throw that out there, not complaining, but it seems like that's where this was going. APHIO was great for the time that I stayed there. No complaints or ping pong.

Learning and Academic Resource Center Tutor (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 28, 2017
The UC System expects a lot from it's students from tuition to housing. The UC system also expects a lot from it's student workers, in regards to hours and compensation. The UC does not provide fair wages to both student workers and other laborers on campus. It is a good place to work if a student has work-study, but students should look elsewhere for employment if they wish for better compensation.
Extremely Productive and I get to collaborate with colleagues
Professor of Dance (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – May 17, 2017
I love what I do. My work place allows me to impact lives daily. My students come in ready to dance and embrace the creative thinking process. Everyday I learn something. I deal with a wide range of students' abilities ( beginning to advance) and all of their personalities ( excited, stressed, sore, tired and etc.). I seem to have created a good sense of balance when teaching movement and historical facts that still keeps my students engaged.
