    I have been working at University of California Berkeley

    Pros

    1. Being a researcher at UC Berkeley is a valuable learning experience. 2. I got assigned a great mentor through URAP (Undergraduate Researcher Apprentice Program) 3. Flexible schedule

    Cons

    It's not a paid position

    Advice to Management

    Good call to implement the URAP program!


  2. Cal is a better place to be as a student, disappointing as a full-time employee

    Pros

    Being around students in a learning environment can be exciting if you ever get the time to interact with them.

    Cons

    Staff people are thought of last. Faculty is treated best, then students. Some faculty won't even return emails and phone calls from staff. There is virtually no diversity in mid and senior leadership. This is the first place I became familiar with the term the "walking retired." People pretend that it is a meritocracy, but it's not. Strong performers don't get adequately compensated and those that don't work very hard I saw get the same annual performance increases as those who worked hard, just because they'd been there a long time. My manager wanted me to fudge records that correctly showed I worked well over 40 hours most weeks because she thought it made her look bad as mange(?!)

    Advice to Management

    In a state as diverse as California, one would think that it would be impossible, for example, for MBA Career Management to be staffed with only heterosexual Caucasians and Chinese Americans.
