Doesn't Recommend

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

Pros

This is a world-class school, everywhere you go you meet bright people.

Cons

Ages behind the times as far as technology is concerned. IT leadership hasn't yet heard about the internet. The only career opportunities in software engineering are in maintenance of old systems, or implementation of new systems that use obsolete technologies or concepts.

Advice to Management

Hire innovative people to lead IT, not bureaucrats and bean counters.

    Pros

    They care about their employees, constantly communicate with them and make an effort to create a happy workforce.

    Cons

    The Bay Area is a very expensive place to live. The further east you go, the cheaper it is. I have to live pretty far away.
