    Chill job, but you don't do or learn much as a student employee

    Current Employee - IS&T DOCS Technician in Berkeley, CA

    I have been working at University of California Berkeley part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is very chill. No harsh deadlines and supervisors are always very accommodating toward students' schedules. Hours are also very flexible.

    Cons

    As a student employee, I expected to learn a lot about IT, work with customers, gradually gain experience and greater responsibilities. Instead, I've been doing the same mundane tasks for the last 9 months, and frankly, I do barely anything and still get paid.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
