    I have been working at UCLA full-time (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);

    I have been working at UCLA full-time

    Pros

    UCLA is a great institution to work for. They have world renowned professors and state of art labs. It's really great to work here

    Cons

    Not many cons working here. The one major problem I will it is the too much bureaucracy and politics. I wish they will just leave the scientist and engineers do their work without been bug down with politics.
