I have been working at UC San Francisco

Pros

The benefit is great, and the employee relationships are wonderful.
Depending on which department a person works in, things may vary.

Cons

Very little salary increase and facing budget cut soon.
There is a great uncertainty about the upcoming pay cuts and they way they are doing it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is wonderful, but perhaps a little more education on how to advance in this organization.
More mentorship is appreciated

    Pros

    The research opportunities and resources are endless. Some of the greatest scientist conduct research here. UCSF is such a prestigious campus that any P.I that works is worth working for.

    Cons

    Job satisfaction depends on the lab you are working for. Some labs hardly publish and some do frequently. If you are in the job for a publication then just be aware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it is understood that an employee is working towards a publication, then the goals should be met instead of ignored. Employees are there to provide technical assistance as well as striving for personal gain.

  2. World class institution, but faculty are expendable.

    I worked at UC San Francisco

    Pros

    UCSF is world class in basic sciences.

    Cons

    UCSF has a culture, particularly in the med school, that faculty are expendable. There is high turnover for a school of its stature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greater emphasis on treating faculty as highly motivated individuals with personal goals.
