Positive Outlook

I worked at University of California Berkeley as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Hard working, intelligent, innovative, cultural diversity and proper mix of work and fun. It gives a perfect platform to the professionals to excel in their respective field of work.

Cons

I guess only downside is the cost of living in California. Berkeley is too expensive and normal people would find it little difficult to bear the expenses. People do have diversions because of the varied cultures present.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, great students, great to work in the heart of the East Bay. Decent job security, and a wide variety of workshops and resources staff can use to enhance resumes.

    Cons

    A major downside to the job security at UC Berkeley is that many people do not leave. And many people who work here are no longer the most qualified candidates for their positions. The school lacks a focus on rising to the times, and so there is no urge to develop these veteran employees further. This leaves little room for ambitious newcomers to rise up on the food chain. Additionally, comparatively low wages continued to lower the staff morale. Many staff members have just checked out completely. There are no carrots, as bonuses have been frozen. There are no sticks, as it seems nearly impossible to lay off employees who are not fulfilling their job descriptions. It is very difficult for someone who wants to rise, succeed, and make a difference to work to their full potential and not feel like a chump.

    Advice to Management

    Start pulling out the weeds to create a more productive and efficient work environment for people who are being paid a lesser salary, but have so much untapped and unused potential.
