Great funding to do research (bad compensation), competitive environment, project with lack of practical application.

Postdoctoral Scholar (Former Employee)
Berkeley, CA

ProsGreat benefits, a great learning experience surrounded with very knowledgeable and competitive people.

ConsAbsence of work-life balance, compensation for a postdoctoral appointment and living in the Bay Area is too low. I had a baby during my stay at Berkeley and the evaluation of my performance was unfair and non-ethical.

Advice to Senior ManagementRegulate the salaries and compensation for postdocs, take into consideration the cost of living in the area.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
