    I have been working at Loma Linda University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good work environment with 20 working hours per week, which gives enough time to concentrate on your studies. Good christian and spiritual environment. Understanding bosses.

    Cons

    They only pay you 25% of your tuition which doesn't help much in affording most of your expenses. Besides that, it is a good working and learning environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay from 25% of tuition to at least 50%. That would be helpful :)

    Pros

    Good community health programs, promotes work-life balance, seminars available for continuing education, they also promote volunteering activities

    Cons

    Very nepotistic, highly conservative, might be hard to get used to if you aren't into praying/spirituality/going to chapel, private university so they favor those with similar beliefs and have preference/ protect their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please review the cons listed

    I worked at Loma Linda University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Dean of Women at Kate Lindsay Hall will work with your school schedule. You are more likely to be promoted to RA position which will give you room-rent compensation instead of hourly pay. Promotions to Full-time Resident Assistant is possible pending you show excellent time-management skills, keep in close connection with other RA's and make your desires clear with the deans.

    Cons

    Prepare to dedicate time and effort for work related activities all days of the week. Raises are not available unless you are promoted to full time RA or student dean, where pay is compensated differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work at Kate Lindsay Hall.

    Pros

    Caring Coworkers
    Company does many different programs and has many features that benefit the employee. Little things like giving out pedometers to encourage walking, and putting out newsletters to let employees know what is going on are not unappreciated.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to get done every day and it can be very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good atmosphere, and make sure to never forget about the employees.

    Management favors those who are "lifetime friends or family" - nepotism is rampant.

    Pros

    Good educational experiences because it's a level 4 trauma center. Experience here looks good on a resume. State of the art equipment and newly remodeled atmosphere. If your one of those that are "favored" it can't get better.

    Cons

    Lax atmosphere sometimes leads to patient safety issues that are promptly hidden and covered up by management. Management practices favoritism that is off the charts. Higher management needs to do a unit/department management overhaul with respects to not only unit managers but with charge nurses, as well. In fact, the overhaul should ESPECIALLY be with respect to the charge nurses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit gossip. Practice fairness to all employees.

    Former Employee - Research Technician in Loma Linda, CA
    Former Employee - Research Technician in Loma Linda, CA

    I worked at Loma Linda University as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people are extremely nice and welcoming-they're very interested in getting to know you. It's easy to get a sense of camaraderie amongst colleagues there. Lots of opportunities for professional development (i.e. seminars, conferences, etc.). It is a place where you can very quickly feel at home.

    Cons

    Pay is not very competitive particularly if you are in the research sector. The research is not particularly "cutting edge"but every one works hard (and late) in order to advance in their studies and become competitive.

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People are very nice and the have nice Christmas decor. They work an adjusted schedule so most jobs are 8.5 hours Monday-Thursday and 6 hours Friday.

    Cons

    Hard to get anything done. Paid leave/sick leave is a joke. Have to have 120 hours in sick leave bank before you can draw directly from it--takes about 3 years working full time to ear that. Internal website is hard to use. Facilities and policies tend to be outdated. Strongly relies on paper for research where most institutions rely on electronic submission systems. Lots of passing the buck off to others when things go wrong. No ownership unless it's to take credit for other's successes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiding behind politics as an excuse for poor management and inability to get anything done. Update the policies and improve processes or talent will walk. Don't just keep people because they've been there forever. Make them actually work to keep their jobs.
