    I have been working at UCLA part-time

    Pros

    Friendly, welcoming work environment. Great weather. Great location.

    Cons

    A little bureaucratic. But I believe most state colleges and universities are similar in this category.

    Pros

    Overall an easy, flexible job that pays well for students. I had fun there.

    Cons

    Because it's an easy job a lot of students are lazy. They hire some people who are not able to tech troubleshoot. Career staff are overworked because of budget cuts, and can't or don't pay enough attention to student staff. This job will NOT help you land a career position at UCLA.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the lazy/un-knowledgeable student staff. Hire more career staff (this is the university's problem).
