I have been working at UCLA full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Brand name school that will look good on your resume, experience doing various tasks that can be applied in various work environments, beautiful campus, great location, steady job and depending on the department you work for, there are some great teams who well together and are a tight knit group.

Cons

Pay is very low with no raises for anyone for the last 2+ years for anyone in my department. Training is minimal, high turn over in my department so the work load increases often with no compensation. Depending on your department, you may witness gossipy co-workers and unfair and unequal treatment whether it is with the uneven pay for people in the same positions or favoritism toward certain people and exclusion of others for some office outings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start using team building activities, invest in employee development by providing thorough training when people are hired, take time to check in with employees from time to time and have open dialogues about how to improve employee morale and better serve the students.
