Supportive and challenging atmosphere

Coordinator (Former Employee)
Berkeley, CA

ProsTop tier talent, great support staff, excellent campus environment. Strong campus leadership and a constant buzz of events and activities.

ConsCan be somewhat isolated from surrounding community; can also be somewhat closed off ideologically. Could use better resources in some areas (e.g. grad student career development).

Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to get out of the academic realm and engage with the community, especially with businesses. Encourage businesses to understand the strong potential of the students at all levels.

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