    Project Coordinator

    Administrative Analyst (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsI really enjoyed working at UCLA because of it's professional environment, and great benefits! They also promote personal professional growth and offer a great array of classes for staff to take advantage of.

    ConsGetting to work on time was always a challenge, due to the commuting and the horrendous traffic on the 405 freeway. Hated spending almost four additional hours on the road each day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should explore having staff flexible schedules, maybe longer hours and less days -- that would greatly benefit those who have a long commute.

    Great Instructors. Poor facilities. Terrible dean.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBrightest and most innovative minds to learn from. Westwood is a great area.

    ConsComparative to other schools for residency programs, UCLA doesn't pay close to what other residency programs do. For the most part, the school is 50 years old without an update. It is basically is a dump.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a dean that is more interested in the education students and the treatment of patients, than squeezing every penny out of the patients, staff, students and residents.

    Good for the name but lazy individuals dominate the workspace

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgood name, good benefits and job security

    Consran by lazy individuals who know that their job is secure and protected by the government, not concerned about helping lower level employees move up

    Advice to Senior Managementtake a deep look at your directors and what is going on within departments
