    Pros

    Lots of events and seminars with prominent speakers to attend. Get the sense that the faculty really care about the research associates/analysts/graduate students/postdocs in their lab. Faculty are attentive to concerns of their lab members. I feel like I have a project that could someday lead to better prevention and treatment of patients - so I feel very motivated to keep working.

    Cons

    As is the case with any large university/corporation, there is a lot of bureaucracy to get through before one can get started with doing any experiments. The pay is not great given that I have to pay rent in San Francisco.

    Advice to Management

    Try to provide more/better funding to students and staff.

    Pros

    Good pay Innovative Good benefits Sense of doing good for the community Passionate staff and managers -- usually

    Cons

    If you work on the Campus side, as I do, you see the big disparity between Campus & Medical Center Extremely hierarchical You have to make your own opportunities for advancement, and yell about your accomplishments from the rooftops! Otherwise, senior managers may not notice.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with dignity -- don't be so lackadaisical
