    I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    UC Berkeley is a top notch place to do research. Coming here you will be able to collaborate with extremely talented and driven people, on top notch research projects. You will also receive the visibility associated with being in Berkeley, you will hear (and be received with) a lot of the usual: you are at Berkeley, so you must be smart/right.

    Cons

    Not everyone at Berkeley is equally talented, or driven. So you have to choose carefully who you will work with, and what project you will work on. Add to this that management on the side of the PIs is not ideal (they're too busy to keep track of what's really going on), you might find yourself getting less than you deserve, while others get more than they do (sometimes at your expense). So: at any level (grad student or PostDoc) choose carefully, don't get blinded by the UCB brand name

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is still too much red tape in the university structure.
