Pros

UCLA has good location, the professors are willing to interact and help out the students. The California Nanosystems institute is there as well

Cons

Sometimes you feel like your not important, also sometimes your costudents/coworkers can make you angry. Professors usually go for research that gives the most money, not what is the most interesting especially the MAE department

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible environment, lots of smart people, lot of dumb people. Very big place so YMMV in different departments - very decent benefits although things are changing.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance without transferring around to different departments. A lot of deadwood employees just hanging around to collect retirement. Having to deal with faculty can be a headache sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Not really - it is such a distributed environment it depends on where you are in the university, some places are great others not so much.


  2. "Nice place to work, but lots of bureaucracy"

    Pros

    good health insurance, great location, flexible hours. Salary pretty decent, especially if you are a graduate student and get free or discounted tuition.

    Cons

    Unclear expectations, very bureaucratic structure out of sync with the needs of the job. Need more rewards for a job well done.
