Postdoctoral Researcher (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I worked at UCLA full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNice environment. Youthful atmosphere being a college campus. Tons of diversity and lots of services right out your window.

ConsParking is limited and expensive. Opportunities for advancement are scarce. Academic Department heads seriously undervalue their administrative staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be more oversight with respect to how faculty manage their money and their employees. It's like a bunch of poorly run small businesses with no oversight or repercussions for bad business practices. Many of these faculty would lose their shops if they didn't have someone (ie. the taxpayer) bailing them out left and right.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
