Women's Job Satisfaction (5=very satisfied)

January 1970

When you interview, don't be afraid to ask the genuine questions that matter to you. For example, if you're an entry to mid-level employee, don't be afraid to ask questions to the potential supervisor about their leadership style and opinions on professional development. What's their internal department approach, and is their a budget/resources for you to take additional classes, certificates, workshops, etc?

    Culture can be very different based on department. There is wide-range of flexibility throughout the different departments at the University. In my experience, it depends on the department and even within the department itself. Oftentimes, it's your immediate lead/supervisor whom oversees your work that will enable and advocate for (or possibly hinder) your growth and development.

Be so very careful about the department that you work in, ask very specific questions about mentorship, promotion and pay increase policies.

There are a lot more women there. However there is no leadership culture. So the women that get to the very top are often the bitchy, jealous bosses and sabotage other women. The current Chancellor has a very poor record of working with women.

Overall, I think this is a good place for women to work. However, the university has acknowledged that there are far too few women in leadership roles given the majority of women who are in staff administrative roles. Hopefully this current state of affairs will correct itself with time, but advancing may still be a challenge in some departments.

    It seems that most departments on campus have reasonably good flexibility, partly because the university has family-friendly policies and partly because space is at a premium, so they seem to encourage flexible hours and telecommuting.

Excellent opportunities for meaningful work, personal fulfillment, professional growth, and relationship building. Personally, I dedicate more time to work than ideal, but I recognize it may be due to my high-standards. Resources could be more plentiful, but that is understandable in a public sector/non-profit organization.

Work here only if you are willing and able to keep your mouth shut about blatant gender bias, paternalism, and just a general and pervasive lack of effort and motivation by staff. I was verbally mistreated by a male colleague in a meeting, and when I complained, was eventually let go for failing to get along with the man.

UCSD has great benefits and usually great flexibility, but the pay is subpar. You need to have an MD or PhD to really be making it. Management is tough.
