Former Employee - Administrative Assistant III in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Administrative Assistant III in San Francisco, CA

I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Professional development opportunities are encouraged, good salary, collaboration among different levels at the hospital, the feeling that you are making a difference

Cons

I was there during Operational Excellence and I wasn't effected but many of my co-workers were upset by the changes that caused.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There was a mentorship program that you couldn't enter until you had been at UCSF for more than a year. I had to seek out my own mentors for advice and guidance when I first got there.

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Fellow in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Fellow in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The research environment is really stimulating and collaborative. There are always great seminars and new postdocs coming from other places to befriend and/or learn from. The faculty are all really passionate about doing good science, and it makes for a great training environment. In addition, there are numerous bay area science & technology events to attend.

    Cons

    It is incredibly expensive to live in San Francisco and UCSF does not account for the cost of living - salaries here for postdocs and graduate students are the same as they are in Nashville, TN, for example. Also, because the training environment is so top-notch, and the state of funding in science is so dire, many PIs are stressed and many people work 60-90 hours a week.

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

    Pros

    Faculty, location, benefits, infrastructure, work culture.

    Cons

    Since it is primarily a medical school, it would have been nice to have collaborations with engineering schools for technical courses.
