I worked at University of California Berkeley part-time for more than a year

Pros

The ASUC offers very friendly employment terms for students, making the appropriate accommodations for class scheduling and taking strong efforts to hire Work-Study participants. The work environment is student-centered, with most of the staff employed to put on events that are run by and for student groups. Management has good working relationships with all student employees and promotion is fairly predictable. Compensation is on par with most other student jobs.

Cons

Event management can be hectic and client relations are often challenging for the staff to maintain. There can be tremendous amounts of downtime for the employees that is not effectively managed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue hiring employees with customer-centric attitude and client relations will improve.

    I worked at University of California Berkeley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work with some of the smartest people in the world. Most people are very friendly and everyone is relaxed. Things are very Berkeley throughout. Find out yourself what exactly that means :-)

    Cons

    It's hard to say anything about UC Berkeley that I didn't like, although this might only hold true for the particular group I worked with. I have heard that other groups are less relaxed but that is actually hard to believe for me.

    Pros

    Great place to live; interesting research; friendly people

    Cons

    State budget issues are hitting Cal hard. It's not a university with a well-defined research scientist track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the dependence on the state if possible.
