    I worked at UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals full-time

    Pros

    Excellent environment to develop as a young scientist. Resources to do almost any experiment you want. Genius colleagues/mentors.

    Cons

    Postdocs are not treated as real employees, although this is not unexpected. Cost of living is ridiculous for the NIH minimum level salary.

    Advice to Management

    implement a higher minimum wage for postdocs.

    Pros

    Ucsf is a great place to work every since I stopped working as career my life has not been the same. Its a happy positive place with like minded people that work for same goals as yourself to help patients and it shows in your coworkers actions all work together its really like a family environment.

    it can be challenging and overwhelming but that is what our day to day is at ucsf that's why we are highly recommended and number 1 In what we do and everyone wants high standards when coming to ucsf.

    I worked at UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals full-time

    Pros

    First and foremost, the patients! The care is amazing and ground breaking research! They offer awesome benefits and great pay salary which compensates you for the other issues you deal with in your department. Management needs to work on professionalism. My personal department doctors are great but can't say that about management or half the staff. Great learning experience and a respectable company NAME (meaning care not employment within departments) My most enjoyable part of my job was working with the best knowledgeable doctors and helping the patients.

    Cons

    EACH DEPARTMENT DIFFERS! My department:Toxic culture of distrust where it's not safe to disclose information, offer input, or work in close collaboration. Job survival under dictatorship is day-to-day. Everybody is on his or her own. Trusting your peers is risky. Constantly not respected and not free to share input. Negative cliques and gossipers, Dictator managers,Triangulating,Serious communication issues within HEM/BMT department. You feel demotivated and constantly drained. Overworked and unappreciated. Micro managed and too many people trying to tell you what to do, lack of proper advice.

    Advice to Management

    It’s important to be accepted into an office and have good relationships with most (if not all) of your colleagues. Leaders underestimate the importance of encouraging plentiful communication between themselves and their employees, in POSITIVE ways. And the Gossip should be resolved. Favoritism is unprofessional and Respect your employees not belittle and devalue them to cover yourself. Work on proper training quirks For your DEPARTMENT. Each are all different.

    Pros

    Competitive salary; wide array of roles and opportunities; can be collegial; inner city location; forward looking executive management; commuter perks; lots of support organizations within; a veritable united nations of staff members.

    Cons

    If based on a positive perspective/outlook - there are no cons. ...but since this is the cons section. One con might be that in this small city within a City, you need to be strong or risk getting lost in the fray.

    Advice to Management

    How about creating some learning opportunities for staff to help them move to other roles they may be interested in.
