    I worked at UCLA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A majority of the people you will work with are the nicest people you'll ever meet in a workplace. The benefits and time off are awesome.

    Cons

    Everything depends on what department you work in. A few are great, most a good, a few are awful. Many managers got to their position not necessarily by being competent at their job but by managing to outlast everyone else. Every job is politics heavy and affecting any change can be almost impossible. Know your place and keep your head down is generally the name of the game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of innovation. Just because it's the way you've always done it doesn't mean there isn't a better way to do it. Be wary of the little kingdoms that people tend to build, this and stagnation kills morale.
