Mostly AMAZING

Staff Research Associate (Current Employee)
Berkeley, CA

ProsIt is a great institution with many opportunities in various fields. Most research labs are amongst the top in their fields, pushing the limits of innovation. I attended UC Berkeley for my Undergrad and find myself now part of their staff, both experiences have been incredible.

ConsExtremely demanding!!!!! There is a reason that UC Berkeley is the top public university, everyone, from the students to the staff and faculty work extremely hard to make it so and unfortunately there are times when it becomes a bit excessive.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn my particular case, manage your expectations in a more realistic manner.

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