    I have been working at UCLA Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of research opportunities, incredible events open to staff, students, and public, employee mental health services

    Cons

    Intensely long hiring process, huge bureaucracy. It's such an enormous institution that it is really hard to review, because there are so many things going on. I would have no way to rate the CEO's performance as I couldn't be further removed from him. Which is fine, but it is important to understand that your work will very much depend on the department in which you work.

    Advice to Management

    Speed up the hiring process! It makes high quality candidates lose patience and no longer want to apply. I was able to wait because I was still in school when I applied, but had I not been, I would have had to go elsewhere because I needed a job,
