      UCSF is the best hospital to work at in the entire bay area! No other facility even comes close!

      Pros

      UCSF is the best! I've worked at 5 local bay area hospitals and none of them even came close to how wonderful UCSF has been to me. I love my coworkers, staff, management team - I truly couldn't ask for a better place to work!

      Cons

      No job is ever going to be perfect but this is by far the best place I've ever worked! The only complaint I have is that parking is very expensive but that's expected for San Francisco.

      Pros

      Some impressive individuals work at UCSF

      Cons

      Poor support for clinicians who are undervalued in this research oriented environment which leads to them being overworked and overlooked while researchers are promoted and highlighted. There is a high turnover of physicians interested in giving quality care to their patients as they burn out. Administration is not supportive. Salaries are low or physicians, especially for the Bay Area where cost of living is very high. Salaries are very high for administrators.
