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

Pros

Once you are part of the family, almost all staffs seemed to be very nice and friendly. It helped me through part of the grad school. Hours were generally very flexible.

Cons

The pay was not so great, but I was satisfied for being a grad student.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, access to world class scientists and seminars, proximity to biotech, PIEP and BPEP programs for postdocs interested in industry jobs

    Cons

    It's a postdoc (not a "real" job), pay is controlled by feds (NIH) so it's low for the cost of living in the area, hours can be long

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if postdocs were treated as staff instead of the weird "no man's land" that we find ourselves in, but this is not unique to Berkeley


  2. "Great"
