Pros

Such a great place to work. Great benefits, great reputation. If you want an opportunity to grow and learn, work here.

Cons

For the amount of structure at UCSF, there is very little useful orientation to specific jobs, such as nursing. It is very much a 'learn as you go' sort of operation which, in nursing, can be detrimental.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Orient new employees a bit more gracefully.

    I work with great front-line staff, but administrators are out of touch and frustrate the mission.

    Current Employee - Senior Surgical Tech in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at UCSF Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the staff are passionate about what we do - there's a sense of pride in being among the top here.

    Cons

    Not enough staff, the administrators make decisions - about staffing, especially - that reflect that they have been out of clinical practice for too long and have become overly concerned with short-term profit goals. Clinical care suffers because of it, which hurts patients and our reputation. Pay and other things, like parking and seniority, are not as good as most other places, like Kaiser.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to practicing medicine for a while and forgo just one bonus - it may reorient your priorities.

    Pros

    It really depends on which department you work for but employees are generally content with working conditions...

    Cons

    ...however with the changes to the benefits changing, people are leaving if they don't have much time invested. Pay is lower compared to most comparable institutions and while the benefits were always touted as being the best, these are deteriorating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and invest in the staff beneath you. You're losing a lot of good people who you train and then leave. Continue to hire people who are bright and hard working but be more careful to also choose team players as this is a crucial factor in the workplace.
