Lively community and interesting coworkers. Great opportunities to explore what research is like.

Student Assistant III (Former Employee) Berkeley, CA

ProsThe chance to collaborate with researchers in a variety of disciplines and departments. During my time as a student, I did research in 3 departments and had a positive experience in each position. If you don't have previous experience, you can start as an unpaid volunteer and transition to a paid position with time.

ConsAs an undergraduate student, jobs are more difficult to get if you don't have work-study. Many campus positions are for work-study only - these tend to be administrative type jobs and are paid fairly well for a student salary. When I first looked for a job, I checked Callisto (which fortunately does have some non work-study positions.)

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