Overall good place to work but some questionable hires in management
Assistant Professor (Current Employee) – Pomona, CA – November 9, 2012
Not a bad place to work - money's good, paid time off is exceptional, benefits are average to above average.
Most of the people are nice, and enthusiastic about what they do. But a few of the "higher-ups" around Dean/Chairman level are terrible managers, either because of incompetence or people skills that would make an autistic look like an expert politician. Problem is that they are in the positions of power in the school, so it's sometimes hard to avoid dealing with them. School politics aren't bad at lower levels, though, and faculty genuinely seem to want to work together (or at the very least don't actively sabotage other faculty). Human resources seems a bit disorganized, too, and faculty support services (purchasing, facilities) can be slow at times, but overall they're not much worse than other uni's I've worked in.
