Software Developer (Former Employee), Berkeley, CA – September 12, 2012
Doing research as a software developer at LBNL. It's a nice place to work, your co-leagues are all Masters / PhD and really smart people. The working pace is really fast and you feel like you learn / produce something each day. However, since it's a research institution, it doesn't pay as well as the private firm.
Project Coordinator (Facilities) (Former Employee), Berkeley, CA – July 20, 2012
Pros: small fee for coffee (starbucks)
Cons: can only work 1 year as a contractor
I really enjoyed working as a Project Coordinator. Working on several projects made it challenging and a great learning experience. Having to work with other employees outside LBL and coordinating/planning meetings with them made it even more enjoyable. I make any job part of me...my ability to work with others, being resourceful, being the go to person – more... and wanting to be the best Project Coordinator. – less
