Approves of CEO

I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good pay
Innovative
Good benefits
Sense of doing good for the community
Passionate staff and managers -- usually

Cons

If you work on the Campus side, as I do, you see the big disparity between Campus & Medical Center
Extremely hierarchical
You have to make your own opportunities for advancement, and yell about your accomplishments from the rooftops! Otherwise, senior managers may not notice.

Advice to Management

Treat staff with dignity -- don't be so lackadaisical

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    My co-workers were generally congenial and my supervisor was excellent. Smart people. Some interesting research.

    Cons

    Like the rest of academia, they are increasingly hard-up for funds. Some research is on topics often considered pseudoscientific (acupuncture). If you have worked in research elsewhere, you are likely familiar with the pressure to obtain significant results.
