Current Employee - Graduate Student Researcher in Berkeley, CA

I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

People are very friendly, very smart and very willing to learn new things, or teach things to others. Compensation in the sciences is pretty good, and if you look hard enough you can find fellowships.

Cons

There are very few ways to resolve conflicts within research groups. Conflict and group culture vary wildly between different departments and research groups, so be sure to look into that carefully. Berkeley is a fairly expensive place to live as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be more ways to resolve conflicts with advisers and within research groups. Some of the sceince lab facilities really need an upgrade to keep up with other top tier research institutions.
