    I worked at University of California Berkeley

    Pros

    You get to work at a place where your colleagues celebrate innovative thinking. The workforce is highly motivated. It is a relaxed environment yet everybody works really hard and is open to sharing ideas with each other.

    Cons

    The financial compensation is slightly below market rates. It is a government funded institution, so pay would depend on current market conditions. Apart from these, I can not think of anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are great.

  2.  

    Wonderful community in some ways, but also a lot of disfunction and mediocrity.

    I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some brilliant, hardworking, passionate people. Some awesome, inspiring students and faculty. Beautiful work environment (campus), decent benefits, perks of being in a university setting and occasionally going to lectures. Also perks like being able to use the on-campus art studio!

    Cons

    Huge bureaucracy, lot's of disfunction, lot's of unevenness in terms of the skills and competencies of other staff. Often felt that higher level administration had no idea what was going on, didn't listen, didn't care.
