I worked at University of California Berkeley part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Management was very good, reasonable and clear in their expectations. As I was a student, they were very flexible with the hours and the pay was better than most part-time in hospitality or retail, the usual alternatives.

Cons

At least in my department, there was really no room for growth or much of any advancement. The work itself was repetitive and not particularly interesting. Also because of the budget issues funding for my position was very tenuous.

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

    Pros

    As most already know, this is a world class institution with access to some of the finest facilities and brightest researchers & students in the world. Great people, exciting research what more is there to say?

    Cons

    -CA budget issues have tightened up spending and funding.
    -Lack of central career guidance for students in some departments
    -Typical administrative bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up on redundancy and bureaucracy. Improve central management of resources so everyone's not trying to reinvent the wheel. While it's understandable that every Prof. needs to "stand-out" to reach tenure and beyond, it's sometimes frustrating watching groups compete for funds to do the same thing: just work together!
