Fire Prevention Analyst in San Francisco, CA
on November 25, 2022

I worked here for 3 and a half years and really enjoyed my time at Ucsf. When I first started I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do career wise. They teach you about different groups within the department (EHS) and got the opportunity to work with IH and Fire Prevention. Now I’m on the path to get my bachelors in fire science.

Asistente de ventas in Radiográfica costarricense
on October 21, 2022

A lo largo de mis años de experiencia, ha sido un constante aprendizaje. Trabajar en la supervisión de colaboradores de ventas me produjo mucha satisfacción con cada logro del equipo. Durante mi participación como miembro del comité asesor de la compañía, adquirí conocimientos en el manejo de Estadísticas y Condiciones, basado en Cienciología. Fue enriquecedor echar a andar cambios en diferentes departamentos como asistente en la gestión del desarrollo del programa ISO. Como asistente de gerencia, reconocí la importancia de las relaciones humanas y la gestión con las diferentes áreas. Asimismo, dar capacitación al personal o clientes de la empresa es una práctica constante de conocimientos. Como recepcionista, vendedora y ejecutiva de servicio al cliente he aprendido a prestar atención a los detalles que implican la satisfacción del cliente. En general también me desempeñé con éxito en el control de calidad, análisis registrado, inventarios, control de activos, como cajera, digitadora de datos y más.

Postdoctoral Fellow in San Francisco, CA
on October 6, 2022

Overall not a bad place to work however it is highly dependent on your group as a postdoc. Be expected to work overtime. The school has a fair amount of resources and a supportive, inclusive culture. The pay is terribly low in the bay area.

Research Assistant in San Francisco, CA
on October 5, 2022

Strong academic research groups at one of the top graduate programs in the country - your experience will depend on the specific department or team you are on though, as with any large organization. Most research groups are pretty competent and politics can vary. Pay and benefits are below private sector norms, but that's not unusual for a university.
