    Pros

    World class research (I'm in neuroscience), excellent location. In the past few years Berkeley has taken "alternative" careers more seriously for STEM researchers and now offers many workshops to help people looking beyond the academic track.

    Cons

    Postdoc pay lags Stanford (but hey, you're a postdoc). Postdocs are basically on the NIH pay scale. Also, Berkeley's academic disciplines can be a little siloed.

    Pros

    Good benefits, some good staff, excited students. Work/life balance is attainable.

    Cons

    Low pay, disorganized and inefficient organizational structure, lack of funding. Some staff very complacent. Rarely got a raise, even for cost of living. Little opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Centralize, streamline, organize. Use the money saved to keep tuition low and pay staff what they deserve. Offer paths and opportunities for career advancement.
