    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.

    Pros

    respected research institution that keeps faculty motivated to be current in their particular fields.

    Cons

    a boatload of beaurocracy and having to fight for respect, especially from faculty of color

    Advice to Management

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