    Pros

    Employees have access to great healthcare and other benefits. Scripps is one of the biggest and most financially stable healthcare organizations in SD so you've job security.

    Cons

    Scripps has a no layoff policy, which means that, at times, you have to work with people who have no motivation to do their job or do it well. The worst part about that is that no one corrects the behavior and that can be really frustrating over time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time and money into succession planning. People shouldn't have to be called in during medical leave to fix an issue because no one else can address it.

    Pros

    Pretend to care. Pretend to be all around. Good pretenders.

    Cons

    Restructuring going on at the hospitals- and no transparency about it.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth! Adhere to Scripps values when letting people with decades of experience be told they aren't needed anymore. And don't try to sell it as if it's a surprise! I am disgusted we have become true slaves to corporate America. We need LEADERS... Not puppets.

    Pros

    Although my intentions were never to be a floor nurse (the goal has always been ED), Scripps Chula Vista made working feel like going to spend time with my second family. I started and graduated the New Grad Program. Scripps always provides outside entertainment opportunities to go to the theatre, Padres/Chargers games, great retirement matching, and management was always listening for new ideas and taking input to heart.

    Cons

    Scripps Mercy Chula Vista does receive less resources than the other hospital sites, and can show in patient satisfaction scores and staffing struggles. Patient satisfaction scores affect the end of the year bonus per each hospital site.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and supporting the family environment. Eventually (though unrealistic) Chula Vista facility should be renovated due to rooms being too small and crowded for patients.

    Pros

    Good people mostly and pretty decent pay.

    Cons

    A ton of favoritism in the CEO's office. Basically they break every policy that everyone else has to follow. CEO thinks he's the greatest thing but he overlooks bad behavior in his own office. Sickening...

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to get rid of people who drop the morale and set an example for the rest of the company.

    Great company in which to grow career.
    Overall, benefit package is good.
    Very large hospital and clinic system.

    Cons

    Political environment and lots of favoritism.
    Far too much protection of poor-performing employees. Weighs down morale of staff.
