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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Pay level differs according to teaching experience. Usually pays better than a graduate student researcher position.

    Cons

    Some courses requires heavy grading duties, but can be arranged with an additional grader if one asks early.

    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).
