    I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The location is obviously unbeatable. The facilities are also well maintained. The patients and the overall culture of medicine in the region are both very good.

    Cons

    Like many public institutions, UCSF suffers from inefficiencies.

    This may or may not be a "con" depending on your perspective, but unions seem to be quite strong in the region.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to maintain a patient centered approach. Retain faculty and be kind to the residnets. Happy providers are good providers. Happy providers provide the best patient care.
