Good place to work if you can handle management
Information Technology Field Services Intern (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 5, 2019
Management right now for IT is a bit of a mess. With vacancies, teams are consolidating. People are leaving and their positions arent being opened up. 4 techs left, only one Full time position is opening. Bit weird.

But I like the environment. Otherwise friendly coworkers.
Pros
Great location, good coworkers
Cons
Job advancement may be an issue.

Practice Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 2, 2019
Working for UCSF is a great opportunity that will boost any resume. However, I was a contractor through MGA and the pay was horrible. You have no control over placement and have the possibility of getting stuck in a bad department. UCSF is a fantastic organization, just dont go through contractors.
Pros
experience

Unfair Treatment, Hostile Environment
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  ZSFGHDecember 12, 2018
The organization mention they strive on diversity, safety, culture, and honesty however the company model is set up for fear-based management style and very hostile work environment. Holding management accountable for poor management and hostile work environment isn't UCSF top priority and it will risk losing your job if you do the right thing by addressing it.
Pros
Great Benifits
Cons
Hostile, unfair treatment

I loved working here
Research Analyst (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 16, 2018
If the cost of living was not so high in the San Francisco Bay Area, I would have definitely continued to work at UCSF. I moved back to the east coast for more money.

Dept of Psychiatry doesn't value support staff
Executive Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CaliforniaOctober 11, 2018
Some employees are overloaded with work while others who brown nose and get in good with management do absolutely nothing. The "EQUITY" system is a joke. You are left to make the same amount of money as a person with no previous experience or education if they get a job based off who they know. This happens quite often. Life work balance there sucks and management is clueless or pretending to be clueless of just how miserable their employees are.Support staff is paid pennies and required many times to do the work of 2 positions.
Pros
pretty good benefits
Cons
little advancements, poor compensation for amount of work being done, crab in a bucket mentality

Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 3, 2018
While being in San Francisco I have learned the city's culture leans on diversity, thinking differently and pushing the envelope. ALL these things are true at UCSF. It was the place where I have grown the most and I will take the characteristics that I learned here with me always.

Rewarding Work, Low Pay
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 6, 2018
The work is very rewarding and the management is great. Annual salary increases are very modest. Almost makes no difference when they also increase health insurance premiums, parking costs, etc.

The pay is not competitive considering we are in the center of the Bay Area.

Major Con: managers have little to no say when it comes to pay. HR takes the lead and rarely rewards a high-performing and motivated employee. This eventually causes loyal employees to leave the organization and take their talent elsewhere....Stanford
Pros
Rewarding Work, Great Managers, Collaborative Environment
Cons
Extremely Low Pay for Bay Area

Very Cooperative and Good workplace culture
Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 15, 2018
Good place to develop job skills, experience. There is a lot work and the job responsibilities are often broad which allows for more opportunities for growth and development. Company is open to suggestions for process improvement and efficiencies. The work place culture is very cooperative, people are willing to help. Management is fairly good. However, significant improvements in leadership would result if the company instituted 360 performance review for supervisors and managers.

Cons: The mandatory retirement contribution > 7% is high and a large portion of an employees paycheck is taken for taxes, benefits and retirement (up to 50%).
Pros
Job growth development opportunities
Cons
High mandatory retirement contribution > 7% & low salary, benefits are fair
