    I worked at University of California Berkeley full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Absence 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 ManagementAdvice

    Regulate the salaries and compensation for postdocs, take into consideration the cost of living in the area.
