    I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of freedom to work your own hours and execute your own ideas. Other grad students and post-docs are really nice. The bay area is a great place to live.

    Cons

    PI is hands-off to the point of negligence. There is no pressure to generate results, which might sound great initially, but instead yields an environment where the only people that care about progress are the grad students and post-docs. Projects are poorly thought through and there is no overlap between projects, so lab members have to invent their own route to success using whatever means they can find from outside the lab. No lab manager. Money is spent on frivolous and duplicate supplies and then is unavailable for desperately needed purchases. PI is absolutely unwilling to help with the job search.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire.
