    I have been working at UCLA

    Pros

    large school with a lot of resources, diversity, great faculties, student life and sport/gym/entertainment facilities are great, and of course the weather

    Cons

    bureaucratic; salary isn't high enough due to the living cost in LA; it's easy to get lost since it's such a big school

    Pros

    Flexible environment, lots of smart people, lot of dumb people. Very big place so YMMV in different departments - very decent benefits although things are changing.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance without transferring around to different departments. A lot of deadwood employees just hanging around to collect retirement. Having to deal with faculty can be a headache sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not really - it is such a distributed environment it depends on where you are in the university, some places are great others not so much.
