Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Los Angeles, CA
Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Los Angeles, CA

I worked at UCLA full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Beautiful campus, diversity, variety, convenience, staff discounts, lots to do, lots of ways to get involved and network, non-profit organization

Cons

Other people love working for UCLA too, so many of the professionals with some experience under their belt tend to stay a looooong time (many until retirement). This is great for them, however, if you are a more junior employee, when you've grown and are ready to move up to the next step in your career, you may not be able to do so in your current department; however, there are often suitable positions open if you're willing and open to moving to a completely new department or division at a different location on campus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think it would be beneficial for management to take a more proactive, gregarious approach toward ushering and facilitating the career growth and leadership development f their junior employees. This would help to retain them and reduce turnover. There's only so long that an experience college (UCLA) grad is ok with being in an admin or coordinator role; eventually, they will outgrow the position and be ready to take the next step in their career, and UCLA management needs to anticipate, accept and be ready for this. If they do so, they won't lose the time and resources they invested in that employee, they will foster an even deeper sense of loyalty in the employee for their employer, and they will keep these great minds within their organization.
