I worked at University of California Berkeley full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great name brand and decent benefits. They have a postdoctoral union now, that helps keep things fair for postdocs. They have a lot of resources for postdocs in terms of job hunting and groups.

Cons

The pay is lower for postdocs than at most other bay area universities. Also you will be a postdoctoral researcher, which is it's own con.

Advice to Management

All of the HR or ordering systems at Berkeley are a mess, and the operational initiatives are not working.
