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

    Pros

    Cutting edge research, Excellent hardware experience, Great opportunities to follow your own path and develop your own research, Berkeley is great and San Francisco is better so the location alone makes up for most of the issues.

    Cons

    Very little management, not many senior staff available (at least within my dept), postdocs don't have great vacation etc. The Postdoc union is trying hard to improve the rights of postdocs. The lab is not in very good condition - very old and outdated and in need of a makeover. The acedemic mindset is alive and well here, which is not always a good thing, especially when it comes to administration and management.

    Advice to Management

    Help postdocs make connections to senior staff and graduate students. The grad students are automatically connected with their advisors but don't assume postdocs are too.
