It what ever you make of it.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's a place where you can grow and succeed. It can also be a place where you stagnate depending on who you are and what your goals are. The pay is fair and there a plenty of resources. It is possible to be overworked if you don't have clear boundaries and you are a people pleaser.

Pros

Benefits, Pay, Resources

Cons

There was a disconnect between directors and clinicians based on the unit you work at.

Productive and busy workplace

Working at UCLA has overall been a good experience. However, as a float, there are times where you may feel secluded from those working on the unit and assignments at times may be stressful/busy. Overall, a good hospital to work at with job opportunities to move forward.

No perks. No drinking water in the main lunch room in the my respective floor of the building. .

The culture is straight forward. I did not see much interactions among the employees. The training is done as a class room setting with the manager.

Pros

You get the end of the year off.

Cons

Lunch room has second hand tables and each department is responsible for water needs.

Big Place

UCLA is huge so it's hard to characterize with broad brush strokes. Good benefits. Opportunities for advancement are lacking when compared with the private sector, but of course there are many exceptions to this. Depends on the manager and team.

Great

A great work environment, with a workload that was manageable. Managers were well organized and knew how to support their staff. I would recommend working with this organization.

Solid and Respectful place to work

I enjoyed working at UCLA because I was able to learn a wide variety of administrative skills, while having a secure work environment to rely on. My coworkers were always respectful and kind to me, and I even made some friends that I keep in contact with years after my contract ended.

Pros

Great working environment, stable employment.

Cons

Administrative tasks can be repetitive or monotonous.

Hard to move up; does not pay well.

They do no pay well, and are not negotiable. Hard to move up in the company, its not about your experience or goals, you must know people. Lots of work; not enough pay; lots of staff call out, and HR does nothing about it. Hard to operate when there is no staff.

Pros

Pension.

Cons

Low pay, hard to move up, staff call out daily.

Great benefits and I felt very supported by my managers during my time here. I did lab work so every research lab has their own culture depending on your PI. But ours had very reasonable expectations which made working here a great experience, I was able to make a lotOf connections as well as grow a lot professionally

Seems to have a great system working

I was a nursing colunteer and though there can be some issues with slow days or not knowing your responsibilities, plenty of staff members were always open to help or educate

Fast paced

Love my labor and delivery unit and postpartum unit. Some people are super cliquey and have an ego, but overall you can find your people and have an amazing time.

Relaxing and exciting

This was probably the most chill job Izvestia ever had. The graduate students and MD/PhDs dont reallly have a set schedule, so sometimes you see them, sometimes you don’t. The job is relatively easy, but unless you’re in grad school or actually working with a grant on some research, there’s a lack of growth opportunities.

Pros

Awesome cafeteria food

Cons

Wage

Compensation is great, work culture poor

The pay and benefits were great but the culture was awful. No compassion, no help from fellow nurses. Overall disappointing. It may have been spearheaded by management who was cold and callous in many ways.
