    Pros

    The people are really solid, very interesting to work with. People tend to stick around because of the pension. The company is affiliated with UCLA, so it gets UCLA benefits. The workload is manageable and it is usually easy to take vacation. It's in a happening location and very accessible, close to Lake Merritt.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape because of the unions and UCLA. Getting a raise can be difficult. Raises, bonuses, and incentives are not distributed due to merit-- everyone gets step increases. So if someone is doing a lousy job and another person is working hard, they get the same reward. There is not a lot of room for growth, but it isn't impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for the people who work for you, not only for the people you work for. Stop trying to make sure everything is fair. Give harder reviews if necessary.

    Interview

    I received a phone call less than 24 hours after applying for this job. I agreed to a phone interview the following day. The interview went very well. I was told I would be emailed the UC benefits right away and that the process takes 30 days. Two weeks later I had hears nothing and received no email. I finally called and she apologized and then sent the benefits. I was told I would hear more by the end of the week.
