The most lovely people work here. A typical day at work depends on the project you're working on and if you work with animals or not. Everyone here is always willing to answer questions and provide support. The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexible schedule and of course the people!

Not Disclosed (Current Employee), Not DisclosedMarch 5, 2014
UCBerkeley is quite possibly the worst place I have ever worked. Between the lack of efficiency, limited productivity and lack of any solid management, UC Berkeley seems to be a warehouse for people who can't make it anyplace else.

Teaching Assistant (TA) (Former Employee), Berkeley, CAFebruary 21, 2014
This review is about a TA part-time position in UC Berkeley. A typical day at work consists of preparation, preparation and more preparation! UC Berkeley is one of the most renown universities in the United States and standards and authenticity are very important. Teaching materials must be creative and provide an enriching experience for students. – more... The hardest part of the job is to balance the academic life between teaching, being a student and having a social life. The professor is very nurturing and co-workers are friendly. This is a great learning experience in the career of teaching. – less

Business Technical Support Analyst (Former Employee), Berkeley, CAJanuary 21, 2014
Great place to work if you do not want to think. Just work here if you do not like challenges. Management is horrible, have no people skills, and very condescending. If you like being treated like a 8 year old, this is the place to go. Great benefits though, but pay is well below market value.
