    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

    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.

    Pros

    I have been granted flexible hours. My bosses respect my opinions, and we have a fairly flat office structure. Our workplace is comfortable, and we can always obtain anything we need to make work smoother or better.

    Cons

    I do not feel as though my pay and benefits upon starting at this job were commensurate with similar employees in the Scripps system or in other health systems around SD.

    Advice to Management

    Do a little more research on salaries before you make a final offer to a potential employee. It will help you hire this person you really want.

    not necessarily striving to be the best in patient care

    Current Employee - Allied Health in San Diego, CA
    Current Employee - Allied Health in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -no-layoff policy
    -competitive pay
    -current equipment
    -overtime pay

    Cons

    -bureaucratic, large-company approach to management
    -quality of patient care has never been the foremost concern coming from upper management

    Advice to Management

    It is possible to achieve the best patient care while still meeting revenue goals. Listen more closely to the healthcare professionals actually working directly with patients as to what it would take to improve care rather than thinking of it as a revenue problem. Stop rewarding management annually for the status quo -- award them for achieving specific goals regarding patient care.

    Pros

    Open, collaborative leadership; great benefits and supportive environment. Many locations in the San Diego area; room to grow professionally and good educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Following the ups and downs of health care, the finances are a big issue for each work group. Sometimes when an employee leaves they don't rehire the position and distribute work to existing employees, making for very tough work loads (only happens during lean times). More leadership career opportunities for clinical staff; not so much for non-clinical.

    Advice to Management

    There is so much focus on MD accomplishments. Why not recognize the accomplishments of other staff, such as nurses, support staff and other employees who have done some remarkable things.

    Pros

    Best staff I have ever worked with. ICU nurses and Critical Care MD's are amazing.

    Cons

    Management and administrators are horrible now. Horrible micro managing. As an employee, you are just a number. They don't care.
