They will just ask the world of you and give you nothing
Manager (Current Employee) –  Berkeley, CANovember 9, 2018
They still are living in the 90's. Systems are all out of date. They still do time cards by hand. Management is horrible. Coordination is terrible and they will ask you work overtime at the last minute because of lack of foresight. Do yourself a favor and apply to another of the many communities within the Bay Area
Cons
Unpaid overtime, poor management, horrible coordination & communication

Great place to serve your community
Mental Health Commissioner (Current Employee) –  Berkeley, CAMay 22, 2017
The City of Berkeley offers many opportunities to serve your community. From volunteering on a specialized commission, to the many peer to peer services, the City has many entry level positions.
Those lucky people who become vested in the top notch benefits system, cannot afford to live in the City they love.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Expensive housing
