    I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great research is completed here. Great vacation & sick package. You can gain a lot of experience working a job with many hats.

    Cons

    Staff are underappreciated, low paying university, most staff know more than supervisors, everything is politics, low pay, and rude supervisors full of drama. Work has become even more demanding, short staff, room for growth is not as easy as it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Shared Services is a downfall. Everytime outside consultants who do not work in the day to day university life always make process harder especially if they do not understand federal and auditing policies. No one is happy.
