Engagin, difficult place to work
Assistant Manager, Sterile Processing (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 13, 2014
UCSF Medical Center is a world renowned hospital with a lot going for it. UCSF does have world class facilities and is on the cutting edge of surgery in all fields.
There are a lot of challenges in the UCSF culture, departments are not left to run themselves and lends itself to a lot of inefficiencies.

Vast university of brilliant minds...
Project Manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 6, 2014
Pros: resources and learning opportunities
Cons: thick bureaucracy
The drawback being that as with any large University, the bureaucratic culture is heavily layered and often frustrating. But if one can rise above it, there are countless opportunities to learn new skills. Even beyond that, UCSF is always at the forefront of medicine and not a day passes without an interesting lecture on the latest advance.

Because the job can waive a part of your tuition, so the pay is so high that you cannot miss it if you want to have some more money.

Good place to learn and get experience
Laboratory Assistant (Current Employee), Riverside, CASeptember 17, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, benefits, experience
Cons: pay, little to no advancement, very slow approval process, parking
Great place to learn and gain experience. I got to work closely with faculty and graduate students. A typical day involved managing the lab, ordering lab supplies, assist with research projects (lab and field), highly involved with the technical work and lab safety. I also had supervisory responsibilities. Overall, an enjoyable experience and have met – more... lots of great people.

The downside of the job is the pay and pay raises don't happen often. It is very difficult to advance and the approval process is very slow. During the academic year, finding parking is a struggle no matter where you park (on-campus or off-campus). – less
