I worked at UC San Francisco part-time (More than a year)

Pros

I"ve worked in several departments at UCSF. All in all I was treated well and encouraged by each of the managers for whom I worked.

Cons

The "cons" were typical of working as an admin in almost any environment...the inherent conflicts between worker bees and managers..lack of adequate salary increases and the like.

Advice to Management

I'd like to see more emphasis on hiring admin staff with true education. It gaules me to see people with any post secondary education rise from secretarial type positions to division level management positions.

    Pros

    Combination of clinical and basic scientific research, as well as access to industry

    Cons

    Places like Berkeley have more excellent classes (even if they represent a small percentage of what is offered).

    I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a tremendous amount of talent at this institution, as well as a diverse array of resources.

    Cons

    UCSF is a public institution, and appears to always be riding the ragged edge financially. One consequence of this is considerable consolidation/turnover of the administrative staff in recent years, which can make it really hard to get things done effectively. Also, student health benefits are quite paltry.

    Advice to Management

    Put some pressure on the administrative staff to get things done quickly and efficiently.
