    I have been working at UCLA part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    UCLA campus is beautiful. There are good facilities for exercise and opportunities for extracurricular activities. The workload combined with courses is reasonable for most graduate students.

    Cons

    You are on your own with research. Professors are too busy and outdated to help you. They are generally spending time on fancy presentations instead of original research. Most of them are not open to new ideas either. If you want to get a sense of how they are, just imagine that I know many Full Professors at UCLA who does not know how to check their email. Yeah... It's unbelievable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professors need to be controlled. Most of them are not working after they get their tenure.

    I worked at UCLA part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The folks who work here are highly motivated to work with under-represented community college/high school students. Their work positively influences many lives. Employees will also be impacted by the students they work with. Very diverse group (age, race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation).

    Cons

    With many student employees who are focused on their schoolwork (as they should be), the office can get a little disorganized at times.
