    Post-Doc Factory Unsuitable for Graduate Students

    Graduate Student (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    I worked at UC San Francisco full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Since UCSF cares only about grant money, their name is highly respected by funding agencies. It may be easier to get your grant approved here… Cons: Most graduate schools de-emphasize students' actual learning, teaching experience, and social life, which is made up for by the thrill of discovery and actually doing… Advice to Senior Management: Replace your graduate program with technician labor since that's all… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
