Pros

- UCSF is a well known school

Cons

- Upper management could care less about staff - Terrible human resource staff - Few opportunities for growth in the academic environment if you are staff because PI's want to keep the money to themselves

Advice to Management

- Start appreciating staff, regardless of their status in the workplace

    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.
