I worked at UCLA

Pros

It's good for resume experience. Working at a school, the environment is nice and you can meet students to make friends.

Cons

Pretty much a source for cheap labor because they always compare you to starving students who would take the job for nothing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Though student labor is cheap, you get what you pay for. Offering competitive salaries will result in getting better products.

    I worked at UCLA

    Pros

    As a research assistant, I could work from home or from campus; I had access to the best research sources and technologies, and the job was very interesting. The campus is beautiful and it is a dream place to work if you like research in social sciences.

    Cons

    No benefit, bad salary, expensive parking, and not rewarded according to your abilities but according to your level of education. I only had a bachelor degree but I was doing the job of a graduate student. Because I was not a graduate student I was not offer another job opportunity once my job ended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To implement a work review program so that gifted workers can have an opportunity to grow and perhaps start a graduate school program. Work experience is the best way to find out which graduate program to join.
