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

    Pros

    Really chill job, you get to use the facilities when no one is around. Also you get free printing. It serves a basic function that requires you to know how to use and fix printers in the center, but that's about it.

    Cons

    The low pay means that you have to put in alot of work hours to get a decent salary. However that being said most of the people who work hours end up studying during the time anyway; you take out as much as you put in!

    Advice to Management

    NA


  2. "Great funding to do research (bad compensation), competitive environment, project with lack of practical application."

    I worked at University of California Berkeley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, a great learning experience surrounded with very knowledgeable and competitive people.

    Cons

    Absence of work-life balance, compensation for a postdoctoral appointment and living in the Bay Area is too low. I had a baby during my stay at Berkeley and the evaluation of my performance was unfair and non-ethical.

    Advice to Management

    Regulate the salaries and compensation for postdocs, take into consideration the cost of living in the area.
