    I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best management I have every worked for. Reimbursement deal for getting your master's at UCSF is pretty great, and my coworkers rock!

    Cons

    Like any place, you got so bigger egos (surgeons), some unexperienced NP/PA but all in all, it is a wonderful teaching hospital, and our fellows and attendings are awesome to work with

    Advice to Management

    Let's be serious, I don't know who he is - and I don't think he really checks out how the units are running....

    I worked at UC San Francisco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    supportive environment for postdocs & grad students
    amazing career office
    lots of opportunities to explore different career paths

    Cons

    If you are a scientist your work environment is going to depend mainly on your PI - in my case that was not the healthiest, to say the least- however UCSF community made up for that!

    Advice to Management

    Put in place mechanisms to evaluate PIs mentorship & supervision skills

    Pros

    The science is incredible, the researchers are top notch

    Cons

    UCSF regards postdocs as disposable cogs in a wheel, make sure you have a good PI, not much support otherwise

    Advice to Management

    Support your postdocs better, especially clean up HR where postdocs are concerned
