    Exciting, frustrating, and conducive to only minimal growth

    I worked at UCLA

    Pros

    beautiful campus, conveniently located, a relatively diverse demographic and excellent networking opportunities if one is both charismatic, ambitious and persistent. daily amusement as well.

    Cons

    i don't even no where to start! First, you must know that ucla is only conducive to minimal growth if you do not know the right people and have an extroverted enough personality to smile or joke your way into an array of professional opportunities. The second and only thing you need to know is that UCLA is more blue than it is gold even when the sun is shining---and it shines often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value student employee professional development in an active way, encourage your employers to discontinue drawing distinctions between student workers and full time employees---it's divisive and therefore counterproductive (and a bit unfair too).
