I worked at University of California as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The press is fantastic, with interesting publications and a history of publishing important titles. I gained a lot of experience and I benefited from seeing how the field of publishing works.

Cons

At the time, they were struggling to transition through a layoff period. They continued to let laid off people work for over 2 months and this cause the workplace to become tense.

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

    Pros

    Cozy atmosphere from the smallness of the sizes of different campuses, world class scientists and facilities and perks of being in San Francisco

    Cons

    Very few departments and not enough emphasis on the physical sciences. A sense of life outside the building hardly exists from a consequence of cold winds and a mostly 9-5 culture

    It was a good experience and very laid back which helps when you're a college student.
