I have been working at UC San Diego Health System full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Work-life balance possible depending on the "needs of the unit" and favoritism. Benefits are among the best I have reviewed in healthcare. Specifically, rate of pay superior to most other hospitals in San Diego, multiple health plan to choose from (although the size is reducing), short and long term disability available, employer paid dental and vision benefits and pension available to career staff. However, employee contribution (for nurses at least) has increased significantly with the last union contract (averaging $200 per pay period) which has led to a significant pay cut in reality.

Cons

Very negative nursing management, creating a hostile work environment. Team work not valued. High staff turn over.

Advice to Management

Senior nursing management (above unit level) should keep a closer eye on unit nursing managers and investigate why staff turn over is so high. Encourage a positive team spirit which will reflect positively on patient and staff satisfaction.

    Cons

    Some of the nurses are not very friendly. Parking requires fee, especially for volunteers representing from UCSD campus laboratory but working at the Medical Center. Location is a bit far from UCSD campus.
