Support from Management
I have over 20 years analyst, supervisory experience and wanted to try UCSD, in spite of all the negative feedback I received from colleagues working in academia. The department I was in lacked diversity, much like their student population. I came in to replace someone who already had an egregious relationship, and the other administrative person cried almost everyday, later to resign for a better position out of state. I never worked in such a competitive, uncooperative environment. Again, I came in as a temporary realizing after a week this was not the place for me, so I pursued outside employment opportunities and it was not looked upon very favorably, although I agreed to complete my assignment. I sent complaints to my recruiter almost everyday, in attempts to do the right thing. It's pretty empowering when you have the skills to know you don't have to accept certain behaviors from an employer and can move on. But, you feel sorry for those who feel shackled and deal with the abuse.
Seems to but difficult to gauge when your success is dependent upon poor management, and their unwillingness to offer equal training opportunities to everyone.
