My experience has been a good one, but I do not like that there is a lot of office politics and little room to move up.

Pros

Flexible hours, non-micro management, nice co-workers etc...

Cons

Many supervisor changes, lack of communication, office politics and rumors etc...

Advice to Management

It would be great to give feedback to our employees from time to time. There should be a form of quantifying the work that people put in, because the current one is biased and promotes favoritism.

    Pros

    UC Berkeley is a great place to network. It allows one to be free and find oneself, especially all the undergrad students, while having first class resources at hands reach.

    Cons

    Public university that seems to be alternating to a soon to be private university. Very competitive, a doggy dog world before the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Very good place to receive leadership experience. Very intelligent people to work with.

    Pros

    Hard working, intelligent, innovative, cultural diversity and proper mix of work and fun. It gives a perfect platform to the professionals to excel in their respective field of work.

    Cons

    I guess only downside is the cost of living in California. Berkeley is too expensive and normal people would find it little difficult to bear the expenses. People do have diversions because of the varied cultures present.
