Very competitive university
Clinical Associate Professor (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 28, 2018
Faculty that were established at the institution's school of nursing were not very skilled at mentoring new faculty. Although new faculty shared interest in involvement, little followup communication to "pull" you in the fold. Materials where difficult to receive to excel. Maybe if I had more time there before relocating that would have changed.
Pros
Great campus
Cons
Poor mentorship

I was in the temporary pool
Temporary Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 23, 2018
Just an absolutely abysmal experience from start to finish. They should be ashamed. I've never dealt with an organization with worse communication, less care for its employees and more arogance.

usd
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 20, 2018
USD provides a great working atmosphere. What they lack in competitive pay they make up for in benefits and over experience. Also great if you have a child entering college within 2 years.
