    I worked at Scripps Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Scripps offered great salaries and benefits packages for full time employees. It was very easy to accrue a significant amount of PTO, especially if you were frugal about calling in sick. I requested and always recieved an average of over 4 weeks off a year, for just about every year I worked there. Twice I took 5 week vacations. My management was always down to earth and easily approachable. Your extended leave bank maxed out at 480 hours, so if you ever needed to take a leave of abscence for a medical, mental, or family problem it lasted a long time, since it was combined with State Disability pay and rationed out, a small amount at a time. The only medical benefits which seemed somewhat limited was there dental plan, although I have heard that most companies are about the same in this regard.

    Cons

    I had a very specific skills set and was somewhat stuck in a limited supervisoy role for 8 years until I decided to leave. I would have liked to have had the option of leaving that role, at least temporarily and training in a different modality/area of the department.

    I have been working at Scripps Health part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. I am a CNA and I love the culture at Scripps. The nursing staff are very caring and work well as a team for the most part. I come away from work most days feeling genuinely appreciated. Scripps also has great benefits and pay as well if you're into that sort of thing.

    Cons

    It took a long time to get hired, I get the sense that there is a lot of paperwork involved whenever you want to get hired or change positions. That can be a bit annoying.

    Steady employment with great benefits. Alot of room to grow and develop.

    knowing people is the best way to make it to the top. pay is less then the industry and strong commitment is required to really take advantage of everything the company has to offer.

    Pros

    Great benefirts! Great people! Job Security!

    Cons

    Due to recent health care reforms Scripps has been forced to do more with less. This has had a great impact on staffing as there are constant hiring freezes. Often times when a person quits Scripps that position is eliminated altogether. This is one way Scripps is able to stand by it’s no layoff mantra!

    The challenge with Scripps is the political favoritism. There are some bad apples in management and that causes issues.

    Pros

    Most of your fellow workers are friendly and engaging, and many truly care about their work.
    Scripps still has a good reputation in the community.

    Cons

    Certain people in management are terrible and shouldn't be in their positions. They are egocentric and do not care about the good of the company or their team, and this had created dissonance and loss of good employees. Entire teams have left or transferred from particular departments because of this. People who are so insecure they have to bully their employees shouldn't have positions of power. Management has been made aware of these situations, but does nothing.
    Directors are supported no matter what, but the front-line employees are considered expendable,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your front-line people when they have comments about their directors and managers.
