    I worked at UCLA

    Pros

    There are so many resources available on campus to employees and students to enjoy. There's a lot of campus pride.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy is awful and it makes getting even simple things done a big pain. The parking is also very, very expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TA's are treated fairly well given the tuition reimbursements that accompany salary; however, payment for jobs needs to happen a lot earlier or at more frequent intervals. If you're teaching in the Fall, you don't get paid until a month after school starts, which after three months of no summer salary makes for a very long time between payments.
