University of California, Irvine Employee

"satisfactory overall, a good work environment with necessary tools to get the work done. Friendly coworkers and supervisors are very helpful. Room for improvement in terms of technology. However, postdocs do a lot of hard work snd deserve a better salary, most postdocs also work during weekends and holidays."

Undergraduate Researcher

"I worked independently for The University of California, Irvine as an undergraduate researcher in the summer of 2020. The funding I received for my research and writing allowed me to work on my senior honors thesis without simultaneously working a second summer job."

University of California, Irvine Employee

"Great university setting. I think there are vast differences between which area of the university you work for. I worked for one of the smaller schools within the university and there were layoff rumors pretty frequently. Other than that, the turnover seems low- most of my co-workers have been there for 5, 10, or even 20 years! Great place to work in the right situation."

Math Lecturer

"I have been a lecturer in mathematics at UCI since January 2018, but recent cuts in funding as a result of the COVID-19 have resulted in layoffs. Thus, my contract there will not be renewed. I have worked previously in the aerospace industry and am skilled in a variety of engineering, mathematical, and information technologies. I enjoy development and implementation of algorithms for systems ranging from space communication to biological studies and have developed software and firmware for a broad spectrum of applications. I also seem proficient at testing and debugging software and hardware. My response to the company CEO was based on previous aerospace employment since it is not really applicable at the university."

Test Development Engineer

"I worked for the UCI Rocket Project for about 9 months while attending the University of California, Irvine to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. The project consisted of over 40 undergraduate students and was led by a professor in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department. During my time in the project, we built and tested the largest liquid bi-propellant rocket engine developed by undergraduate students. The UCI Rocket Project provides students with invaluable experience in engineering projects by allowing students to gain hands on experience in conducting performance tests, designing and developing launch vehicles, and creating procedures and documentation."
