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

Pros

Lots of feedback on work performance, positive and relaxed work environment, very flexible scheduling, good rate of pay for a student job, enhances your abilities in negotiating.

Cons

It's a call center, so when you are not talking to anyone it can get boring. However, since studying is permitted when you aren't actually on the phone, this is a minimal problem. Occasionally there would be technical issues, but these were usually addressed promptly.

Advice to Management

The environment can get pretty loud, which could sometimes affect my ability to clench a pledge.

    I worked at University of California Berkeley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    work-life balance, great benefits, extremely lax company culture, easy, flexibility with working hours, great commute via Bart

    Cons

    no room for professional or personal growth, poor management, over-achievers are never rewarded, too much red-tape, too many slackers on campus that hide behind legal security and threaten officials with filing grievances and etc.

    Advice to Management

    lead by example: promote hard-working individuals and also reinforce the importance of education and updating job skills; stop being afraid of employees filing grievances just because they are asked to perform a job function not written into their job description.

    Pros

    Great University, Great Location, Great Weather
    There is no limit for you to learn, to explore, to research here.

    Cons

    The postdoc pay may be not so great, compared to the local living expensive. But that is kind of normal in most other famous universities as well.
