A good place to work, rank and file employees are treated with respect

I have been working at UCSF Medical Center

Pros

Good pay, excellent benefits. Management goes out of its way to recognize contributions of rank and file staff, and the vast majority of the physicians don't fit the academic medical center stereotype (i.e., they don't have egos as big as the Grand Canyon and they generally treat staff with respect). Management is actually willing to publicly acknowledge its mistakes instead of hiding them from the staff.

Cons

Due to space constraints, working conditions can feel rather cramped and facilities are spread out across the city. The IT systems are mostly outdated (not cutting edge like some of Kaiser's systems), although in a few years they will be modernized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have no major complaints about management, they aren't arrogant like the leadership I've encountered at other large health care institutions.

    I have been working at UCSF Medical Center

    Pros

    Location: In the heart of the city; plenty of public transportation; reasonably safe surroundings; lots of places to eat.
    Interesting: This place is a city within the city. It is very interesting to see how it all works together.
    People: Many different nationalities makes for rich societal environment.
    Feeling of pride: We're UCSF - we're one of the best!

    Cons

    Sharing: Sharing of communication, knowledge and resources does not appear to be a priority.
    Decision Making: It takes someone very high up to coordinate a decision - even a relatively small one.
    Parking: What parking?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Audit, audit, audit. Some numbers are not what they seem.

    I worked at UCSF Medical Center

    Pros

    Contributing to highly regarded University and Medical Center
    Very good benefits
    Good support during illness

    Cons

    Horrible, degrading dysfunctional work environment and management style.
    Low morale, poorly paid, no feedback, no motivation, no positive anything.
    Dead end, no advancement potential, no encouragement to pursue advancement.
    Did not feel at all appreciated (and I did my job very well).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a morale problem, by the time I was leaving I found each day to be genuinely degrading.
