For the amount of work required, it pays very well.

Pros

High pay with a very doable workload. With so many classes offered, it's normally pretty easy to get a class that fits with your schedule. The fact that they also pay your tuition in addition to the high monthly pay is fantastic.

Cons

Students are in it for the grade. They have no real advice to learn. Often the professors aren't in it for the joy of teaching either. They are just interested in researching but are required to teach every once in a while. There's the rare professor who actually cares though, and that makes teaching more enjoyable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work harder at ensuring TA's know what they're doing.

    I worked at UCLA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Gorgeous campus. We've got traditional style buildings and modern architecture too.
    -Gorgeous weather. You're going to school in LA!
    -A lot of great professors who opened my eyes to knowledge I didn't even know I was interested in!
    -Diverse campus life: whatever you want to do, it probably already exists

    Cons

    -GE Classes are huuuuge. You'll often feel lost, but once you get to your upper div classes, everything's a lot better.
    -Depending on your major, you may have a lot of teachers who you just can't connect well with, but that's what the TA's are for!
