    I worked at UCLA as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The daily work was interesting and inspiring.

    Cons

    There were more than a few times (many times, in fact) that my payment was not processed in a timely manner for whatever reason. Getting UCLA to move on fixing their error is a exercise in total futility.

    It seemed that if they lost your payment or it got pushed to the side and forgotten about, UCLA would do absolutely zero to correct THEIR error. Getting it rectified was an absolute waste of breath and energy. Because it wasn't directly impacting those processing the money (they got paid that week, so they could pay their personal bills and buy groceries and get to work with gas in their tank), they seemed to not care at all that their mistake would take months (plural) to fix. In fact, people in other departments seemed afraid to call payroll/accounting to inquire or request any help when this type of situation would arise. It seemed to me to be a situation where everyone was held hostage.

    Needless to say, this was a total drag about an otherwise pretty cool job.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with this chain of impossible bureaucracy. People should be paid for the work they do in a way which sustains their daily living. I mean, that's why all of us work, right?
