    Pros

    Great employees to work with. We all helped each other when it got busy. Very talented set of employees and the training time was very minimal with other new employees.

    Cons

    Management are not very loyal to their employees. If you had a problem with a protocol or there was a glitch in the system, we were to blame and the did nothing to fix it.

    Advice to Management

    You might loose really great employees if something doesn't change.

    Pros

    Great Benefits / Great Benefits / Great Benefits. You need to look at the whole compensation package because (as a once finance person there) what UCSF pays you *say 65K as your take home, and what UCSF pays for you are two different things. The company pays about 40% more on top of what you take home, in benefits for you. so you are really making 65K+40% more. Good work/life balance but only IF you personally take advantage of it.

    Cons

    I did not take advantage of the work/life balance and worked a ton. That is why I was very frustrated and got bitter and burned out. There are also a ton of office politics and gossip which is to be expected from an institution that is THE LARGEST employer in SF along with "lifer's" (aka: people who plan on retiring from there) so 50% of people slack off all day and 50% of people do everything.

    Advice to Management

    less top down management and listen more to middle management and the great suggestions from the staff that feed it up to middle management.
