    Exciting, frustrating, and conducive to only minimal growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    West Los Angeles, CA

    Prosbeautiful campus, conveniently located, a relatively diverse demographic and excellent networking opportunities if one is both charismatic, ambitious and persistent. daily amusement as well.

    Consi don't even no where to start! First, you must know that ucla is only conducive to minimal growth if you do not know the right people and have an extroverted enough personality to smile or joke your way into an array of professional opportunities. The second and only thing you need to know is that UCLA is more blue than it is gold even when the sun is shining---and it shines often.

    Advice to Senior Managementvalue student employee professional development in an active way, encourage your employers to discontinue drawing distinctions between student workers and full time employees---it's divisive and therefore counterproductive (and a bit unfair too).

    Great place to work for a little while.

    Front Desk Supervisor (Former Employee)
    West Los Angeles, CA

    Proscollegiality, is a good place to work while going to school. You get to meet a lot of people who are coming into the gym to work out, and it is definitely a place to be seen on campus. The work is not really hard and you are able to do other things such as homework or studying whil eon the clock. Some of the management realizes taht this is just a student job, so they are not super serious or hard on you, while others have an unrealistic expectation of what employees should do. Overall, I would recommend working at the JWC.

    Consnot really a future working there

    UCLA not a bad place to be.

    Student Affairs Officer II (Current Employee)
    West Los Angeles, CA

    ProsJob security is one thing that you will always have with public sector work. There are a ton of vacation days that are paid in addition to personal and sick days. In many cases you hit the ceiling for your personal and sick days with normal usage.

    ConsJob security is a double-edged sword also means little room for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPush employees that are not productive instead of the employees who are.
