    Pros

    Good learning environment. San Francisco is a amazing (albeit expensive) city to live in. Very good opportunities to get mentored in innovation and other similar fields. The facilities at the Mission Bay campus are really nice.

    Cons

    Getting a PhD takes a long time and is incredibly stressful. The facilities are old (at Parnassus). It's very difficult to afford to live here because of the high cost of living. It's very difficult to get research funding in general, so make sure you work in a well-funded lab.

    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.
