    I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (less than an year)


    Excellent science being done here. Great faculty, multiple nobel laureates and a beautiful campus. There is so much diversity in the student population and the kinds of research being done on campus. Benefits are excellent and the Berkeley lifestyle is awesome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Distribute the massive amount of funding you get. Reduce tuition.

The University of California at Berkeley has been organic from the beginning. UC Berkeley was created by the state's Organic Act of 1868, merging a private college and a land-grant institution. From modest East Bay beginnings came a world-class university that grew world-famous in the 1960s from the Free Speech Movement on campus, and for the social activism that still defines many of its students today.
