Pros

The environment is tuned to make you succeed. Fast, pace, great collaborators, fantastic resources. Collaborative and collegial environment, as much as perhaps possible in such a high-tier University and research institute.

Cons

Fast pace and competitive environment. You need to work hard, it is likely that stuff will happen with you or not onboard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase payment and housing for postdocs. The salary range is currently 50% below the average salary of the public transportation workers (BART). BART workers went on strike last year because they cannot afford living on their salary in the bay area. Postdocs are struggling living in the Bay Area too.

    Pros

    Great research, great weather, great culture. I enjoy being a part of the community. A lot of places for literally every interest possible. San Francisco is just there.

    Cons

    Expensive! Very expensive area to live in. Also, people tend to be very smug and arrogant.
