    Pros

    Lots of smart colleagues, great benefits, interesting talks and events for scientists to learn new techniques and meet more scientists, many instruments and cores in the institution, decent time off, UCSF campus doesn't have the best food.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of cons, but the low pay stands out the most. San Francisco is trrribly expensive. They will make you pay $280/month for parking. No where to move up without PhD.

    Pros

    It is a very good place for postdocs. Gladstone provide excellent scientific training and generous benefit for postdocs. In addition, Gladstone provides awesome working environment and scientific atmosphere.

    Cons

    Although the salary for postdocs is higher than that of postdocs working at UCSF. It is still hard to afford to live in San Francisco, especially for people have little kids.

    Pros

    The environment of the institute is great. The HR staff is wonderful and supportive.

    Cons

    San Francisco is the mot expensive city in the USA. There are very few spaces in schools and your child can get placed anywhere in the city, without you having a choice at all. I had to home-school, because there was no space in public schools, aside form one school, rated 1/10 (the worst), in a high crime area. People rather move than to send their children there. 2-bedroom apartment is about $4000 per month. Most people commute long distances.

  8. "Supportive and dynamic scientific environment"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Gladstone Institutes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent support and facilities for scientists, including editorial and graphic design services and state-of-the-art core facilities (stem cell, animal, imaging, etc). Many events and seminars emphasizing not only scholarship but also topics like diversity and career development. Great location in a sunny part of San Francisco.

    Cons

    There are few female PIs, especially in leadership roles. Cost of living is very high in San Francisco, especially considering that graduate students and postdocs are trainees so get low pay!

    Pros

    I started my Gladstone life as a postdoc trainee. There are many training programs to improve your capability for your next-step career, for both academic and industrial directions. Many training programs are free for Gladstone trainees. Gladstone also has very good scientific environment to inspire you and good research cores to support your projects. Salary is also a little higher than university.

    Cons

    San Francisco has very good whether, but research pressure keep you in the lab most of time, although it totally depends on what you really pursue for your career.
