Most people work at UCSF because they want to. The PRIDE values drives the community there. Management can be hit or miss. Don't expect to be spoiled with free lunch every day, but occasionally you will be fed. Not bad overall.
Pros
High ranking name
Cons
Pay

My job provides me the flexibility for work hours and gives me better bandwidth to multi-task. Management ensures that scientific training is balanced with leadership opportunities and mentoring role to build a complete portfolio.

Find that most Departments waste money paying people to come to work to do absolutely nothing. Feel like management in most Departments is unaware of what goes on in that department. Managers get paid for doing nothing.

I learned A LOT and gained lots of skills, but very disorganized management, salary is not comparable to salaries in the Bay Area and EXTREMELY hard to get raises without a title change (I was even laughed at for asking), archaic policies and my department had no perks that are common to other companies in the area.

Your experiences at UCSF will depend on the department that you work for, your supervisor, and the basic structure of your work environment. Try to work in a department that has a lot of funding, such as transplant or oncology.

I will not suggest anyone to join UCSF if you are progressive and looking for making an impact.Culture is very unproductive and inefficient and management is non-reactive to positive changes and improvement recommendations,

Given that I'd worked there a number of ears ago, the culture and work environment may have changed for the better since that time. However when I was employed, nursing was cut-throat, competitive, poorly managed and mostly, a horrible place to work. At that time I would not have recommended anyone to work there. Support, advancement and career improvement was minimal.
Pros
Great location, a state job, benefits were okay
Cons
poor management, minmal staff support, a toxic environment, got paid once a month

UC Reagants have too much power. The move to mission bay was perhaps poorly planned and executed. The physicians, and other clinical staff are phenomenal.

It’s one of the best places I worked employee benefits wise. If they offer me to rehire, I will go back in a heartbeat. I am sure with the addition of more cutting edge equipments the accuracy and turn around time must have further improved. Go team !

Atypical day work starts at 9am and ends beyond 5pm
Learned that you need to be self dependent and self motivative to finish the task

Management is good for student rights and protection.

Workplace culture is very traditional

The hardest part is to mingle with people.

Enjoyable part of job is flexibility of time with your work

Managers with little or no experience in the field they are managing. Deadlines being met is more important than quality of work. No opportunity for advancement.

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.
