    I worked at UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Overall friendly colleagues. Great vision/mission.

    Cons

    Management could learn a thing or two from the diversity training and conflict management training UC offers. Due to increasing administrative burden on all medical center employees, the workload can become extremely demanding and unfortunately, management does not care or compensate well for time and effort. Furthermore, despite taking initiative, management does not promote growth for its staff.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees. Listen to them and promote their growth.

    Difficult to move up in title or salary. Highly unlikely it happens within 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent about opportunities for growth at time of offer, or people will be unhappy.

    In my experience, management cares about you and works with you in career advancement opportunities. Teamwork oriented with many friendly faces! Great benefits

    Of course, as with any institution, there are some managers that create stressful and unhealthy work environments for their employees. Parking almost impossible to get and very expensive.
