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

    Pros

    I was a student worker while I was an undergrad at UCLA. I was a registration assistant and I loved it. My boss was amazing and so were the students and staff who worked there. The pay was definitely on the higher end compared to other students jobs -- especially the ones on campus. They worked around my class schedule, it was awesome.

    Cons

    The only thing that was bad was when the budget got cut so did all of the student hours. Not UCLA Extension's fault, just something that was a bummer about working there.

    I have been working at UCLA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Numerous R&D projects, proximity to top medical center, many experts in their fields, great benefits

    Cons

    No real path to growth ... unless the manager is your personal friend; it is structured like any large corporation where things take time to get approved or changed (if at all);
