I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The new Mission Bay campus is gorgeous. Top notch research facility. Access to many resources, the hospitals, and talents from a variety of fields.

Cons

Work culture depends on the lab you are in so it varies a lot. Long work hours but it can be very flexible. Overall no complaints.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Love the new Mission Bay campus. QB3 and the entrepreneur center are awesome. Not loving the new bearbuy system though.

    I worked at UC San Francisco

    Pros

    Access to good equipment, knowledgeable and friendly staff, flexible hours, nice facility, get to work on cutting edge research

    Cons

    Not really any cons. Some days might be long but that comes with working in any lab. The surrounding area is a little dead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Everything stays clean and orderly. All management I've worked with were helpful and supportive.

    I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are numerous opportunities to attend seminars and events, which are emailed to you daily. There are a lot of top people to potentially collaborate with. You are given 24 days off and 12 sick days per year.

    Cons

    Because there are multiple campuses, not all of the seminars and opportunities are nearby. HR took a while to enter me into the system, and they can be slow. Most likely your relationship with your boss will be awkward enough that there will be unspoken pressure to not really take all 36 days off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more HR personnel or manage them more effectively.
