Working at UC Berkeley has been a wonderful experience

Administrative Officer IV (Current Employee)

I have been working at UC Berkeley

ProsHuge community of co-workers, lots of employee development resources, excellent benefits, relatively secure jobs.

ConsThe longer you work at UC Berkeley, it seems the less qualiified you are to work anywhere else. They pay is less than the private sector, and we are subject to furloughs and reduced hours because of the budget cuts. There are a lot of UCB systems that you have to learn to navigate to do your job, but once you learn them its not so bad. Initial job training isn't always there for you, you have to find someone to teach you what you need to know.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think they are doing a great job with what they have to work with.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
