    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Because of an overall lack of accountability, plenty of time to work on personal business and outside interests. Difficult to get fired. Objective performance goals and reviews are talked about, but frequently don't happen.

    Cons

    The academic senate (tenured professors) run the asylum. This is a wacky bunch of ego centric wackos. Most have never worked a day in outside industry and have no real world experience. Professors treat everyone like they are grad students -there to be abused. There is zero career growth. Everyone gets the same performance review and (lack of) pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    I worked in industry for twenty years before spending 14 years working for UC Berkeley. There is no
    accountable management here. My advice is to bring in real, trained managers (like they produce in their MBA programs) and get rid of the clowns with Phd's that may be experts in the area of their thesis, but have not hard or soft management skills. (If you don't know what hard and soft management skill are, ask someone with an MBA). The UC is a ripping off the tax payers.
