Current Employee - Assistant Specialist in Berkeley, CA (US)

I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great minds in the California PATH research program, very good environment, a good deal for me to experience research before possibly applying for a PhD position. A lot of freedom to learn in different programming areas.

Cons

The salary of a temporary position (less than one year) assistant specialist step 1 is twice or three times less than the one I could expect in the Silicon Valley.
