    Deceptive hiring practices. Too many oldtimers - who are WAY behind the curve.

    I have been working at UCLA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Working with students is by far the best part of working for UCLA. Get out and enjoy the beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past. Management refuses to embrace technology or new best practices. Anderson school of "mis-Management" has a horrible culture. High level professors, especially the emeriti, are a sham. Definitely a case of "those who can't do - teach".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and appreciate new talent and clear the path for advancement by thinning out the old wood instead of letting us slip through your fingers while you chase your tails and quote policy and procedures from the 1980's.

    Zero raises, chastised if ask for raise, ignorant management, unfair balance of wages, favoritism, zero training opportunities, zero motivation, not rewarded for work, increasing workload and responsibility with zero compensation for said increase, expected to live on stagnant wage, treated with contempt, disappearing benefits, specifically retirement program.
