    I have been working at UCLA full-time for more than 15 years. I gained valuable life and work experience.

    Administrative Analyst (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThey are on the edge of Technology, Medicine and Research.There were seminars and training to teach you based on your job description.

    ConsSenior staff refuse to share imformation regarding job function, but instructors/teachers was very kind and supportive! Can be bureaucratic and there are division/departments within the organization where good management practices are lacking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior staff should be required to share imformation regarding job function, don't rely on co-workers to train new staff members. Classes should be required for all new staff members by instructors/teachers regarding job title.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Prosit is so good, two or more people where questions are asked by the interviewer to elicit facts or statements from the interviewee.. it is not that difficult and is so useful. I really like it and appreciate it.

    ConsFinally, another aspect of interviews that can affect how a participant feels is how the interviewer expresses his or her own feelings, for interviewers can project their moods and emotions onto those they are interviewing. For instance, if an interviewer feels noticeably uncomfortable, the participant may begin to share this discomfort,[9] and if an interviewer expresses anger, he or she is in danger of passing it on to the participant. So, researchers should try to remain calm, polite, and interested at all times.
