    Pros

    If you are about medicine then it's the place to be.
    They are outsourcing the HR and IT.

    Cons

    if you not about the medicine stay away. UCSF is under tremendous stress to reduce costs and they are doing it by outsourcing all non medical jobs. They have outsources their HR to Irvine, they have outsourced their procurement system to Berkeley / Sci-quest. They must reduce their costs and employees sufferer.

    Advice to Management

    Have the band play on.
