Accounting (Current Employee)
Berkeley, CA

I have been working at UC Berkeley

ProsBeing part of a system that can help the Bay Area and in many cases the world a better place.

ConsLow pay and years of no raises or cut backs.
Continuing to foster an Us vs. Them mentality between Faculty/Upper Management and staff.
System rife with favoratism within departments. Friends helping friends. Some carrying a huge workload and others barely have work to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop acting like what staff does can be done better by trained chimps. What we do is not easy add dealing with HUGE egos of faculty without calling them on it daily takes a skill set. You get what you pay for, once the current crop of dinosaurs is gone..me included your in for a rude awakening.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
