I worked at UCSF for 2 years. There is diversity but leadership is primarily male dominated. Benefits are good, time off is okay, retirement is great. Growth opportunity is there but you need to be your own advocate, find a mentor, and be willing to wait longer than you would elsewhere. Overall I loved my time there because of the people and satisfaction of working at a non-profit and academic setting.
Job Satisfaction Level
Depends on whether a woman is looking for stability or growth.
There is a fair amount of flexibility that allows for work/life balance. While the benefits are good, the salaries are very low compared to for-profit firms. There is very little thought given to career progression and planning; also very limited mentoring. Another big negative is the amount of bureaucracy involved getting anything done.
