Pros

Close to campus-frequent shuttle to bring you up the hill
Awesome hands on experience performing research
Provides an opportunity to participate in world class work
Decent pay for a student
Amazing views from the hill

Cons

Research can be tedious and soul crushing... but it's not Lawrence Berkely Lab's fault!
The routes that the shuttle takes are no optimized in my opinion but this is a small issue

    Pros

    They have pretty good benefits and good internal administration. They have an abundance of projects and opportunities for you to seek out in case you want to do any career movement. The pay is pretty good, especially if you can start working here as a student and work your way up.

    Cons

    The independent labs are pretty far apart and due to the nature of some projects, things can be a little hush-hush. They could instill more sense of community since so many people are employed here.
