    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.

    Pros

    Scripps 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.

    Cons

    Healthcare 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Depending 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop using scapegoats!,,, take ownership in your issues
    Get computerized already
