I worked at UCSF Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great benefits, smart co-workers, projects and programs that have high goals. Stellar scientific leaders. Wonderful sense of collaboration when you're working with smart doctors who can also teach.

Cons

Many incompetent managers who save their venom for analysts and administrative staff. UCSF is very decentralized, with almost 30 campuses and multiple centers of power. There is almost no chance of advancing so get hired at the highest rank you can. UCSF operates on the Hollywood principle: take care of your superstars, let them contract shamelessly with friends and family at will, and ignore their excesses. Then don't pay the non-managers for the work they perform for lame and incompetent family and friends.

    I have been working at UCSF Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Georgous views, Neuro-onc works as a cross functional team to provide patients access to clinical trials. Very heavy work-load so there is always something to do. Friendly encouraging environment and that opportunity to contribute to the cure of terminal cancer

    Cons

    little room for growth, it is very difficult for staff to progress in there careers, management does not offer guidance on important so employees performance reviews are often incomplete and lack direction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider standardizing the role of research coordinators and cross train all employees, there will be less turnover.

    Pros

    The benefits are fantastic, and the people are wonderful! It is a really great opportunity to work for this company.

    Cons

    If you are coming straight out of college it can be lonely. Everyone is generally much older. But that makes for a fun work environment nonetheless.
