    Pros

    The benefits are great here. Also the relationships with co-workers & leadership team is great. The spiritual aspect of working for this health organization is wonderful.

    Cons

    The pay for the complexity of our job skills is the lowest of surrounding healthcare facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better wages for the job as the skill set required increases or changes. People will remain in the department and be less likely to leave for higher paid professions.

    I worked at Loma Linda University part-time for more than a 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.

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time for more than a year

    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.

    Current Employee - Assistant Professor, Biochemistry  in  Loma Linda, CA
    Current Employee - Assistant Professor, Biochemistry in Loma Linda, CA

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The weather is mild and numerous cultural attractions are within a days drive.

    Cons

    The compensation is not competitive. Most departments in the School of Medicine are very political. Faculty who do their share of teaching and service are not supported.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many staff and faculty on the payroll are not productive (teaching and/or research) resulting in a lack of funds to adequately support research, compensate productive employees, and keep tuition low. You need to hire better department chairs who can actually manage their employees to further the institutional mission.

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

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Loma Linda, CA

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time for more than 3 years

    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 for more than a 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.
