Great start to a career elsewhere, extremely low pay
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 17, 2018
Work life balance. Depending on the department, great coworkers. Amazing benefits. Internationally recognized institution.
EXTREMELY low pay. They base pay from your previous job - so if you come from a previous job in entertainment, or out of state, etc, you get low balled so much so that you can not afford to live in Los Angeles. The annual increase, if you are lucky to get one, is actually negated by the increased price of the annual parking pass that comes out of your paycheck. Raises unheard of, promotions rare, it's best to try to find a job in a different department, or come in from a job where you were already highly paid. Some people have been here so long that they are beyond complacent and inept at their jobs. Lack of accountability for those people who shirk their work and put it on others.
I graduated from UCLA so it's sad that working here has been extremely frustrating at times, because I love the school itself so much :(
