Current Employee - Research Associate in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Research Associate in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

maybe one of the best places to be in academia.in certain departments may feel that you actually work in industry but I think that is overall uni policy.they have also convenient shuttle system. various seminar including career development.

Cons

depending on the position, salary might be a bit llow, but keeping in mind that this is academia, that is not surprising.

    Pros

    On the lab research side of things this is a very egalitarian work environment. If you are an SRA who knows your stuff and you have a good PI, you can contribute to the direction of the lab and really make a difference.

    Cons

    The funding situation is bad. Most labs are shrinking and PIs are stretched thin trying to write many grants. HR is EXTREMELY rigid. They will try to classify you as the lowest possible designation, (SRA I rather than SRA II,) tell you that you're lucky to have a job, etc. I know the university is trying to conserve financial resources, but every interaction I had with HR was distinctly negative.
