Most enriching and life changing experience!!!

Graduate Student Researcher (Former Employee)
Berkeley, CA

I worked at UC Berkeley as an intern for less than a year

ProsHard working, intelligent, innovative, cultural diversity and proper mix of work and fun. It gives a perfect platform to the professionals to excel in their respective field of work.

ConsI guess only downside is the cost of living in California. Berkeley is too expensive and normal people would find it little difficult to bear the expenses. People do have diversions because of the varied cultures present.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
