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

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Working with students is by far the best part of working for UCLA. Get out and enjoy the beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past. Management refuses to embrace technology or new best practices. Anderson school of "mis-Management" has a horrible culture. High level professors, especially the emeriti, are a sham. Definitely a case of "those who can't do - teach".

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and appreciate new talent and clear the path for advancement by thinning out the old wood instead of letting us slip through your fingers while you chase your tails and quote policy and procedures from the 1980's.
