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

    Pros

    High standard of research; open, smart people; many opportunities to collaborate; a lot of support for career planning

    Cons

    J1 visa is the only visa option for international postdocs. This is an exchange visa, therefore, it is not necessarily suitable for everyone.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at University of California Berkeley.

    Interview

    I got refer from a friend and the process took about 2-3 weeks. The interview was smooth and chill. Just be prepared to explain your research experience and how you tackle technical problems.
