Pros

I had two different jobs as an analyst at UCSF and they differed widely. An employee's experience will vary depending on management style of the PI.

Cons

In the positions I held, there was no room for career growth.

    I have been working at UC San Francisco as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing resources and mentors, world-class research taking place, great people, lots of interesting events going on all the time, great benefits, learning and training opportunities

    Cons

    Administration is so time consuming, as with any academic organization, but there are a lot of processes that should not be as hard as they are, such as ordering supplies.

  2. Great training with exposure to top-notch research.

    Pros

    Exposed to may exciting research opportunities. Had the chance to work with some of the brightest. Lab budgets vary, but overall the institution is capable of drawing public grants and funds.

    Cons

    Red tape, lots of policies to slow things down, pay is not that great.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and it's not all about grants. Establish better relationships with vendors. Purchasing from accounts actually cost more than people submitting individual orders to vendors. However, we are restricted to buying from a business account if we have one. Spending more with an account is counter-intuitive..
