    Scripps Health is an excellent place to work.

    Coordinator (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsScripps provides great benefits to its employees and encourages advancement within the system. The corporate executive team tries hard to make workers feel valued. Scripps has a "no lay off" policy; if your position is eliminated, they find you another job in the company.

    ConsHealthcare has become a difficult business. Expenses keep going up and reimbursement is decreasing. Scripps has had to tighten its belt, so raises and ample staff are not as common as ten years ago. "Do more with less" is the motto spoken by the average worker.

    Registered nurse

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsMercy great hospital family! They like to hire within.
    La jolla gets less homeless population

    ConsDepending on which hospital you work within scripps you get different treatment. Mercy and chula ghetto but way better employee doctor relationships. Encinitas is a nice place, small though.
    La jolla thinks they are TOO good for the whole system, but they aren't honest people to work for
    Overall Scripps is great place depending on what you want.
    Hire pay compared to sharp or pomerado/ palamar

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop using scapegoats!,,, take ownership in your issues
    Get computerized already

    Wonderful place to work!

    CNA (Former Employee) La Jolla, CA

    ProsGreat pay and benefits, positive environment, kind hearted co-workers. There is a ton of room for growth within the company.

    ConsThe only issue I had was favoritism among some employees and managers, but it seemed rare.

    Decent Company... Like any healthcare company now... Lots of change.

    Enterprise Architect (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsBudgets are never an issue, and they always listen.

    ConsConfusion among leadership on how Information Technology impacts their bottom line and leadership is not really present. Too much of a "management by committee" in the lower ranks. They pay well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow decisive leadership, don't be afraid of a great place to work rating and last but not least don't let seniority be the key to putting people in the proper roles.

    Excellent place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsScripps is one of the highest paying health care systems in the San Diego area. They provide lots of services and benefits to their employees (i.e. 3 free 15 minute massages on site).

    ConsThe system as a whole has not converted to computer charting but will be up to date by the end of 2014. There will be growing pains but it will be a good thing overall.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
