Typical Work Environment
I would say that UCSF is a good place to work. However, with over 20,000 employees it has its challenges. Overall, I enjoyed my time with the HR Department, but after 6.5 years, it was ultimately not the correct fit for me and my future plans.
I would recommend UCSF as a place to work, but I am sure that this opinion would vary from department to department. Benefits are better than average, plenty of vacation and sick leave, several medical plans to choose from to determine the best for your family, retirement/pension plan is fair if you start early enough.
