Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Great pay for students. Flexible hours based around your schedule.

Cons

Not nearly enough training for the job. The job, instead of teaching you skills, has you feeling more like you're running trivial errands around campus.

Advice to Management

More training. More involvement of supervisor for the student teams.

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

    Pros

    Great minds in the California PATH research program, very good environment, a good deal for me to experience research before possibly applying for a PhD position. A lot of freedom to learn in different programming areas.

    Cons

    The salary of a temporary position (less than one year) assistant specialist step 1 is twice or three times less than the one I could expect in the Silicon Valley.
