Current Employee - Programmer/Analyst II in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time for more than a year

Pros

Very comfortable place to work, mostly everyone is very accomadating and welcoming. Perks like holidays, work schedule, telecommuting are really great. Work-life balance is very important in some departments.

Cons

The University as a whole is a bit disjointed, both physically and as a company. Its also a public institution, so things are not as competitive as private companies. Some departments are very family-oriented, so you don't see many of the typical "San Francisco" job perks like free laptops, outrageous holiday parties, free lunches.

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

    Pros

    Once in, it's a large organization and you have plenty of opportunities for growth and lateral transfers. The benefits package is generous - you're fully covered from Day 1 of employment and UC makes a point of celebrating Diversity.

    Cons

    If you are more of a merit vs. tenure person, working at UC or any State institution is not for you. Archaic processes, systems and bureaucracy reign supreme; if you're over 30 and in the private sector, stay there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuing Education and Managing By Walking Around would benefit everyone. Get out of your office and make a point to hide in plain sight and see how the front line people are representing you!
