I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

People are very friendly, very smart and very willing to learn new things, or teach things to others. Compensation in the sciences is pretty good, and if you look hard enough you can find fellowships.

Cons

There are very few ways to resolve conflicts within research groups. Conflict and group culture vary wildly between different departments and research groups, so be sure to look into that carefully. Berkeley is a fairly expensive place to live as well.

Advice to Management

There should be more ways to resolve conflicts with advisers and within research groups. Some of the sceince lab facilities really need an upgrade to keep up with other top tier research institutions.

    I worked at University of California Berkeley part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working within the UC Berkeley community was allowed for many opportunities to meet different people as well as develop strong skills with clients and customer service. It was a great balance between school, work, and social time since they all were incorporated as part of the job.

    Cons

    The only downside to working at the Recreational Sports Facility at UC Berkeley was the late hours of the closing shift.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to adopt better technology at the front and back desks (locker room) at the Recreational Sports Facility instead of investing in extraneous technological advances in the lobby, i.e. the touch screens in the lobby. Patrons benefit from newer and more efficient computers that the staff use at the front and back desks, and not so much from the touch screen computers in the lobby that provide basically the same information that they could get at their homes and from the staff.
