I have been working at UCLA Health part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Access to cutting edge methodologies and challenging problems.
Great team of competitive researchers.
Access to diverse clinical data sets.
Chance to share and discuss clinical knowledge with leading scientists.
Can work independently and contribute to the field.

Cons

Expensive to stay in the vicinity. So if you further away, expect a longer commute.
Salary could be better. Expect to have a focused research plan before you start, otherwise you will spend a lot of time to figure things out, especially since the place is large, and everyone is very busy, and may not have a lot of time for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold 3 or 6-monthly appraisals (without any salary increase expectation, but just to find out if the researcher is on the right track) with your mentor.

    Pros

    Great people to work for and with. Strong teams.

    Cons

    The only CON. The salary is well below industry standards for the area. Attrition is high in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team is on e of the nest I have worked with but they need to rally with the CIO to raise salaries or they continue to risk the high turnovers.
