    Current Employee - Assistant Director in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at UCLA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    UCLA has a culture that supports and rewards innovation. Lots of benefits to maintain morale including gym access, professional/managerial development programs, etc. Decent pension plan with a 403(b) option. Health, dental, and vision plans are generally lower-cost than in the private sector. Lots of rideshare and public transit options for commuting to campus.

    Cons

    Senior administration seem to be more concerned about the financial bottom line than about certain educational missions. UCLA is a very large organization and can have many cumbersome bureaucracies, depending on the area in which you work. Traffic on/around campus can be atrocious.
