A large, cumbersome institution; depending on your Dept./team, etc., it could be awesome or pure frustration.

I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are good and at least in my case the work/life balance was solid; the majority of your co-workers will be great. Amazing research and innovation in the life sciences.

Cons

A huge organization which is not very agile; it takes tremendous effort to move anything forward. Inevitable politics and egos. A sizeable number of middle managers could be let go and it would not be noticed - plus the $$ saved would be considerable. Little to no training for administrative staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Interim Chancellor Hawgood is certainly up to the task of being Chancellor, although a search is on to find the successor to Susan Desmond-Hellmann. That search will take months, as the target candidate pool is probably not a large one, and allegedly there should be some sort of sizzle factor to the choice.
