Pros

Has a great reputation. People work hard and are very bright. True acceptance of diversity.

Cons

The administration is not good about promoting/supporting employees who are not tenured faculty.

Advice to Management

Would be good to have a formal review process and some oversight regarding career development for employees.

    Pros

    Investigators are leaders in their fields of study and if one can afford the low pay as a sacrifice in order to work there, all will be fine. UCSF does have an extensive program to help post-docs transition to independent positions after completing their fellowship - this program needs to used by more post-docs as it represents an excellent recourse. Very wealthy research institute, well equipped with the latest instrumentation, and facilities are pleasant to work in - modern. Lots of community efforts to have post-docs socialize and exchange ideas in order to promote collaborations for now and in the future.

    Cons

    Work like a slave, no security, low salary in a very expensive city. If an international post-doc, UCSF uses Visa status as a means to take advantage of employees - i.e. threatening cancellation of Visa consistently. Very little room for promotion, MD's valued far and above Ph. D's, benefits for post-docs could be much better, especially vision and dental.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect and appreciate the hard work of staff
