I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

World-class medical school and research institution, many different disciplines and cultures offer myriad opportunities to do different kinds of work. Changing the way health care is practiced, working to cure disease.

Cons

Huge organization: each department is an island and highly matrixed, which can make it a difficult environment to navigate. Important areas of infrastructure (research administration, HR, IT) are not being provided sufficient resources to do an increasing amount of work, leading to frustration of both staff and customers.

Advice to Management

Build infrastructure to help support the research.

    Pros

    UCSF Mission Bay has fantastic resources such as gym facilities, housing and general information on how to better navigate life in the Bay Area.

    Cons

    The graduate student salaries are not in line with the cost of living in SF. Thus, it can be very challenging to survive in the city (or in any commuter city)

    Pros

    If you are looking for a flexible and stable non-faculty or research career, UCSF is the place to be!

    Cons

    This varies by unit or departments you working, Because of the sheer size of UCSF, there isn't one common culture at UCSF, so each individual employee experience may vary. As with any non-profit/government job, the pay is less compared to the private-sector.
