    I worked at UCLA part-time

    Pros

    Love the community of people. Good people with enthusiasm and great energy. Great benefits and resources available to employees and on campus.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and office politics at time--at least in upper management. Not as good at evaluating talent. Once in, hard to remove the inefficient workers.

    Be more open minded to talent within an organization. Don't always look out.
