I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There is a tremendous amount of talent at this institution, as well as a diverse array of resources.

Cons

UCSF is a public institution, and appears to always be riding the ragged edge financially. One consequence of this is considerable consolidation/turnover of the administrative staff in recent years, which can make it really hard to get things done effectively. Also, student health benefits are quite paltry.

Advice to Management

Put some pressure on the administrative staff to get things done quickly and efficiently.

    I worked at UC San Francisco as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work closely with top notch investigators and clinicians in their field. My boss was very helpful in promoting my professional development and pushing me to do my very best. It was a lot of work and I often sacrificed my work-life balance, but I think it was worthwhile.

    Cons

    You can be overworked and need to really set limits to establish some semblance of a work-life balance.


  2. Good place to build skills/abilities, but not salary

    I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time

    Pros

    Freedom in research abilities is probably the best part of this job. Also, you build research skills.

    Cons

    Limited salary growth is really the worse part of this job. Salary growth comes slowly, but this is more of due to the research funding situation.
