    Good place to go to grad school, but pick your advisor carefully

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

    Pros

    Large, vibrant research community. Fun campus community. Lots of opportunities to grow. Good weather. Lots of nice, interesting, smart people around. If you get bored of the east bay, SF is very close.

    Cons

    Professors seem to be hired for their research and not for their teaching or mentoring or advising abilities. It can be hard to find a good advisor who both fits your research interests and is also a good mentor in guiding you towards academic success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professors should get more training on how to be good mentors and advisors.
