    HR can be difficult to work with in understanding benefits

    Benefits package is pretty great if you have a full family on your plan (very low premiums, good coverage), but the individual premiums are not even close to industry standards compared to the (rather low) coverage level. As of 2016, the pension plan got significantly worse (after also getting worse in 2013), so this will likely continue. They do now offer a very good 401(k) alternative (match up to 7%, vest after one year), but you have to choose that as a new hire. Vacation and sick leave accrue VERY slowly.

    The pension plan after working at a UC for 5 years! You can transfer it within the UC system, e.g. work 2 years at UC Berkeley and then 4 years at UCSF

    Not enough offered to all employees. I was hoping for more benefits when I started this job.

    Benefits are only applied to faculty and not students. I'm only giving this review to get access to more salaries.
