    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at UCLA Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Variety of project opportunities are available for the right team member.

    Cons

    The organization has little knowlege of or respect for sound project management tools and methodologies. Projects are managed in Excel or using "to-do" lists. Project management methodology is inconsistent and does not address project dependencies, risks, or issues management.

    Pay is a good 25% below the industry standards. Also, pay raises are rare. Be sure to negotiate as high a salary as possible because you will fall further behind industry standards every year you work at UCLA.

    The work ethic of many managers is questionable and hinders project progress. It is not uncommon for managers to leave work every Friday at 12pm.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize the organization's project management methodology. Encourage staff to become PMI certified. Support Project Managers when they encounter resistance to managing projects using industry best practices.

    Increase Project Manager pay to be similar to Lean Specialist pay at UCLA.
