Pros

Lots going on.
Some departments are growing - for example neuro

Cons

No money... have to get a grant to stay there, and almost impossible to get a grant.
Nothing changes... same ppl do almost the same studies over and over.

Advice to Management

Fund more, allow more grants to be submitted, more resources for young investigators.

    I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The lab I worked for was really what made this job one of my favorites so far. They were like my family away from home. As long as we got our work done, we could take a long lunch or leave early every once in a while. Working at a world class research institute also led to six publications in 4 years. Plus I'm still being cited on new papers even though I left 2.5 years ago. There are also many opportunities to attend medical/health seminars and network with the medical school, receive scholarships for continuing education, and collaborate with other departments.

    Cons

    As with any lab job, the work can get monotonous. I felt like I mastered most of my responsibilities after 1 year. But this also gave me more time to expand my role, improve procedures and protocols, organize, be involved in the grant writing process, and learn more about the research itself (not just the bench work). Because of this, I received a promotion from SRA I to SRA II after 1.5 years.
