No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

World class research (I'm in neuroscience), excellent location. In the past few years Berkeley has taken "alternative" careers more seriously for STEM researchers and now offers many workshops to help people looking beyond the academic track.

Cons

Postdoc pay lags Stanford (but hey, you're a postdoc). Postdocs are basically on the NIH pay scale. Also, Berkeley's academic disciplines can be a little siloed.
