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

Pros

Great access to wonderful facilities and equipment. Environment where collaborations do actually flourish. Some undergrads are quite bright and hard working.

Cons

There is an occasional bureaucratic nightmare to deal with. Lots of forms to fill out and incredible hurdles to getting paid as a graduate student. I still don't understand why it takes five employees, several weeks, and a multitude of forms to set up my employment and get direct deposit going.

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

    Pros

    UCLA as an employer has great access to health care via the university's strong medical program, lots of interesting events at work (on campus), and excellent coverage and benefits inclusive of the LGBT community.

    Cons

    The university is very large, so bureaucracy runs rampant. If you have a problem, you usually have to contact multiple departments or personnel to get it taken care of. When I was working here as a graduate student, I ran into problems consistently with getting paid or reimbursed.
