Pros

The work culture is quite nice here and if you enjoy your research, being a postdoc in the UC system has many benefits. The UC postdoc union is quite strong

Cons

The cons are that if you want to have a family then a postdoc salary is the lower limit at which you should be operating. Good thing ofcourse is a postdoc is not meant to last longer than 2 to 3 years really.

Advice to Management

Management needs to take a lot better care of postdocs overall. A lot more mentoring and guidance is required and postdocs need to be considered as serious professionals. Many talented grad students are not staying in research for this reason.
