I have been working at UCLA full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

UCLA has a culture that supports and rewards innovation. Lots of benefits to maintain morale including gym access, professional/managerial development programs, etc. Decent pension plan with a 403(b) option. Health, dental, and vision plans are generally lower-cost than in the private sector. Lots of rideshare and public transit options for commuting to campus.

Cons

Senior administration seem to be more concerned about the financial bottom line than about certain educational missions. UCLA is a very large organization and can have many cumbersome bureaucracies, depending on the area in which you work. Traffic on/around campus can be atrocious.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at UCLA as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked that a lot of the workflows had already been figured out, down to the t, so it was very straightforward to dive right into the work.

    Cons

    Not much of a challenge because all the work was compartmentalized and there was no exposure to other business areas.
