UCSD GEAR-UP Coordinator (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – July 14, 2016
Great institution with great people. Hard to make generalizations but overall it was a great experience. The only issue I had was working in tandem with the San Diego Unified School district that had some counselors and teachers that were tenured and thus lacked the motivation/enthusiasm that young teachers or coordinators like myself had.

I can only speak to the structural engineering department, but they always treated me well. There is much cutting edge research to do there if you are really interested in the structural engineering field.
Teacher's Assistant (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 25, 2015
Work load is assigned weekly with a deadline and is completed independently with some coordination with co-workers and supervisor. The work environment was highly academic and the communication and organization system within the work force was very effective. Interaction with students, professor, and other TA's provided an opportunity to develop strong communication and coordination skills. Following the students' development and performance throughout the courses was the most rewarding part of the job. Co-workers were fun yet hard-working.
Asst. Manager IT Support / Audio Visual Lead (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 26, 2015
UCSD is a great place to work, the benefits alone are worth it. I was at the San Diego Supercomputer and have friends still today who are there. I have been gone now for the last 8 years, but it was a great stepping stone to the career I have today.
