    I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    UCSF has an excellent reputation and there are some wonderful people who work here.

    Cons

    The pay for most does not take into account the cost of living in San Francisco.

    The PIs are not trained, or encourage to train, as managers so their people skills are almost non-existent. They offer little or no career development advice, instead they are paranoid about getting funding. Staff in the labs have no way to voice concerns, as their success is coupled to that of their PIs.

    HR is slow and often ineffective. Operational excellent has severely damaged the personal touch of UCSF.

    Too many reports of bullying, sexual harassment, racism, homophobia for a progressive institution. PIs seem to be able to bully etc without fear of repercussion. The "little man" takes all of the blame. Senior PIs bully their way out of complying with university policy.

    Advice to Management

    Train your PIs and have their training rated by their staff and observed for at least 3 years after appointment. Have all postdocs and graduate students offered tutors not in the same department as the PI to offer advice and moral support.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good people, good opportunities because of the university name

    Cons

    Psychopath PIs who barely show up to work. Extremely sexist and racist workplace with terrible human resources.

    Advice to Management

    Well most of them really shouldn't be managing people.
