    I have been working at Scripps full-time

    Pros

    The corporate office IT jobs are very good.

    Each business unit is operated independently and therefore your experience may vary significantly.

    I have been working at Scripps (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health and other benefits.

    Cons

    I worked for a high ranking leader within the company who had a history of verbally abusing subordinates, and it was well documented as employees often only lasted for a few months under this person. The CEO and other leaders throughout the organization were well aware of this person's leadership pitfalls and seemingly did not like working with nor respect the leader yet did nothing while excellent employees left the company. Also, while the Scripps hospitals have been among the best in the past, my experience as a patient at Scripps Green post surgery was horrendous. That experience coupled with seeing an OBGYN and endocrinologist there that were lacking knowledge and bedside manner, missing a major diagnosis, and notably after 30+ years of solely seeing physicians at Scripps clinics and hospitals, I no longer will consider remaining within the Scripps system of care.

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out. Employees are unhappy, including physicians, and patients are not receiving a high standard of care.

    I worked at Scripps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Seemed like a good culture when interviewing and exploring company. Resources to handle problems. Downtown has some things going on, which is more than I can say for Cincy as a whole.

    Cons

    Awful work/life balance. Leadership had no idea how to run their own company that they had to hire outside consulting firm to help move them forward. Stuck in the past. Stubborn to new ways of thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change, revolutionize your thinking, get out of the newspaper business, buy back Scripps Networks (why did you ever sell that cash cow?)
