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

    Pros

    creative, free environment where one can explore ideas they have for their research. Beautiful campus and lots of great places to work and study all over.

    Cons

    not much money to live in the expensive bay area; a lot of your perks or time-off policies seem to depend on who your advisor is. My advisor is fair- but also has high expectations (perfect balance, I think).

    Advice to Management

    Lobby to get students' higher wages to make living here a little less stressful.

    Cons

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