Pros

I love working with these extremely smart Berkeley students! The institution is open and friendly; diverse and accepting of different lifestyles. I'm a lesbian, and there is a lot of support for me and my family.

Cons

The pay isn't that great, but if you stay here, you get more vacation time and a full pension. It's hard being dependent on the state budget. Some years there's enough money, right now money is very tight. This is hard if you're trying to get new initiatives funded.

Advice to Management

Senior management needs to get real. Some of the people I work for have a million ideas, but no funding to back up their plans.

    listen to and respect faculty opinion, and try not to be so chicanerous in your administrative duties

    Pros

    Excellent educational opportunities are available, including many great resources (libraries, museums, etc.), wonderful student body and faculty. The location is great is you like mild weather and diversity in restaurants, shops, and other amenities.

    Cons

    The university is very large and can be overwhelming at times. It may take some effort to find the information you need. The administration can be slow at times and you need to be persistent to achieve what you want.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the human resources departments are efficient and effective. Give all employees necessary and helpful information in a standardized way, so everyone knows what resources are available.
