    Current Employee - Graduate Student Researcher in Berkeley, CA

    I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    creative, free environment where one can explore ideas they have for their research. Beautiful campus and lots of great places to work and study all over.

    Cons

    not much money to live in the expensive bay area; a lot of your perks or time-off policies seem to depend on who your advisor is. My advisor is fair- but also has high expectations (perfect balance, I think).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lobby to get students' higher wages to make living here a little less stressful.

    I have been working at University of California Berkeley

    Pros

    Everything's good. Working here as a student is probably one of the best jobs on campus.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to speak of. I'm required to write 20 words so I'm filling space.
