I have been working at University of California Berkeley as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

Organizational Culture
Staff & Students are world-class
Location

Cons

Decentralized, large organization
Salaries are often below market
Budget and state funding cuts

Advice to Management

Provide staff with timely and robust communications regarding changes that are pending or planned for the future. I think that management can do a better job of reaching out staff individually and also through the staff affinity groups and other staff groups for input on matters that have a direct impact to them.
