    Do not work for the School of Education if you're a software or IT person!

    Pros

    * Fancy building, good location. * Fun working on a university campus. * In theory, a good mission.

    Cons

    * Leadership is incredibly toxic and does not understand how to manage technical staff. They will blame imaginary errors on you, and not listen to what you have to say. No amount of simple conversation can make them understand even the simplest of tasks. * Staff will scream at, insult, and ableist remarks both behind your back and in team meetings. Staff will spread lies about you. They even do this to students. * You will be worked to the bone, will no recognition. * You will have to sit through so much "Berkeley, we're better than everyone else!" propaganda. * Staff is extremely cliquey and does not welcome people different from them, especially in appearance.
