Current Employee - Graduate Student Researcher  in  Berkeley, CA
Current Employee - Graduate Student Researcher in Berkeley, CA

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

Pros

Tuition and student health insurance are covered. Flexible hours. Nice people (students, staffs, profs, ..) in general. Lots of tons of opportunities in the campus (student society, clubs, contests, fellowships). Beautiful bay area. Closed to Oakland and San Francisco to enjoy city life.

Cons

Crimes (strong arm robbery, assault, hate crime) are very common in the city of Berkeley, especially south of campus. Students are risking belongings walking around or inside the campus after dark.

Graduate students are paid not as much as those who go to work right after Bachelor's degree, but this is reasonable since part of our salary comes as remission of tuition.
