    Pros

    You're constantly around students and professionals that have education as a priority - people tend to have more interesting conversations and so work passes more quickly when you're doing a monotonous task. The work was fairly enjoyable and you're given a lot of freedom with a clear bureaucracy (though there is an obvious hierarchy to get things done through and it's not exactly expedient).

    Cons

    Still a large "company" with lots of regulations
    Pay is alright but by no means exemplary

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job at encouraging employees to work hard by not breathing down their necks!


  2. "Berkeley is a great place to work!"

    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.
