    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Scholar in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good health insurance package, well-connected network of scientists.

    Cons

    San Fran is too expensive for this salary, no childcare package for postdocs at reduced rates; costs more than $2000 per month even in UCSF childcare. It is financially impossible to have 2 kids in childcare even if both the parents are working (as postdocs).
