I worked at University of California Berkeley full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Supporting students is a satisfying line of work

Cons

Operational Excellence and other cost saving measures has caused the campus to lose many seasoned and talented employees before they otherwise would have left. The loss of institutional knowledge is hard to replace. Lots of new systems to learn. Salary increases are small if they do happen.

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

    Pros

    Berkeley always has industry leader come and collaborate on projects. People are interested in my research. We get fundings for projects quite easily. The labs are new.

    Cons

    There could be room for smaller achievements goals rather than just driven by publications. Also wished we conducted more tangible experiments.

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

    Pros

    Tuition and student health insurance are covered. Flexible hours. Nice people (students, staffs, profs, ..) in general. Lots of tons of opportunities in the campus (student society, clubs, contests, fellowships). Beautiful bay area. Closed to Oakland and San Francisco to enjoy city life.

    Cons

    Crimes (strong arm robbery, assault, hate crime) are very common in the city of Berkeley, especially south of campus. Students are risking belongings walking around or inside the campus after dark.

    Graduate students are paid not as much as those who go to work right after Bachelor's degree, but this is reasonable since part of our salary comes as remission of tuition.
