Company reviews
"unpleasant atmosphere/lack of leadership of supervisor"
Former EmployeeDirect Response Manager
Low pressure day at work. I do not recommend working there. I had a bad experience. Immature manager and rampant nepotism. The leadership believes its own advertising but fails to live up to it.

"Great place to work "
Former EmployeeHR Consultant
Not much more to say. Great people and great culture. I learned a lot working there. It can be quite political but most organizations are in my opinion.

"I worked for UC Berkeley 10 yrs. I loved it. But the pay was low."
Former EmployeeAdministrative Assistant
I began working in the Public Relations/Information Office. I loved it. I worked with the students, staff and the press. Keeping abreast of all news items relating to the University was part of my job and I loved it. I also wrote and kept the monthly calendar of events for the campus. When we had a management change(my supervisor retired) I decided to transfer. I didn;t like working with his replacement. I wound up working at the International House on Campus with for foreign scholars (Ph.D's) who came from all over the world to do their research. I liked it because I lived abroad for 4 years and like working with people from other countries.

"Good work/life balance, supportive colleagues/immediate supervisors, not much room for advancement"
Current EmployeeLecturer
As a visiting lecturer, there is no security - you never know if budget will allow for your re-hire each year. Colleagues at the department are wonderful, but their hands are tied as to who they can hire and not.
