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

Pros

Great School. Beautiful campus. Good benefits. Nice people. Overall a pretty good place to come to work every day.

Cons

A lot of red tape. Hard to be motivated/ambitious and succeed. Huge disparity in pay between some departments/disciplines.

Advice to Management

Figure out a way to follow good advice from middle management. Respect opinions up and down the pecking order and don't stifle creativity.

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

    Pros

    Energetic environment for research, a vibrating community and possibilities for many collaborations. Everything is close at campus. In the middle of the city so that drinks and food are around the corner.

    Cons

    It is a bureaucratic system so may work slow at some points.
    They have only recently changed the system to pay the rent to an online payment system.
