"Childcare is not adequate for the population and may be unaffordable based on your salary. Limited facilities for lactating mothers. Leadership at the president/dean level clearly communicates that diversity, equity and transparency are a new priority but management remains the same old boys/old gals club with very different views. Salaries are below area average and are not consistent across departments, when comparing job titles and education. Promotions and hiring tend to be based on favoritism and referrals by other managers, such as children of employees. My manager, a child of a senior employee, had the lowest educational level among their own staff and average experience. Staff salary levels were kept below the manager’s and no one was promoted above the manager for several years. Staff left the institution regularly. Few new hires come from outside UCLA social circles. Employee satisfaction is measured and published, and differs significantly by race. Leadership does not share these results but, employees can get access to the results. It is not easy to get access to these results."
Overall Job Satisfaction:
Are women & men treated equally?
Does the CEO support gender diversity?
One thing Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center can improve?
"Improve work-life balance policies and childcare, flexibility and improve compensation. Compensation is far below average and not transparent. Hiring and promotions are not transparent. Development programs exist but in my personal experience in an interview with the head of HR, conflicting obligations such as pregnancy are viewed negatively."
Level of Flexibility
"Flexibility is not transparent. Two people with the same job title in the same department can have different levels of flexibility. It’s granted by a direct supervisor based on their discretion."
