Approves of CEO

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

Pros

I enjoyed my time at Scripps. They offered extensive training even though I was initially hired on to fill a position for a woman who was going on maternity leave. The benefits were excellent and a casual yet very professional atmosphere.

Cons

The pay is very low to start and not a lot of room to move up if you are not specialized in a field.

Advice to Management

Make sure to always treat the people on the front line with courtesy and respect. The PSRs are the voice and first face people see.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good job security with no lay-offs, Providers seem to really care about improving patient care, beautiful care facilities, and good healthcare benefits as long as seen by Scripps provider.

    Cons

    Too difficult to enact change with so many middle management layers (leads, supervisors, managers, directors, senior directors, assistant vp, etc. Benefits not as good as advertised, no 401k match. Very bureaucratic and political. Shirt and tie attire for IT organization.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit "One Scripps" strategy and cut down management layers to be more nimble. Improve PTO and 401k match compensation. Take a look at Admin department dress codes, many fellow Scripps associates uncomfortable with formal attire.

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

    Pros

    There are a few, very good people in IT that are stuck in this world of hell. I hope they can get out as soon as possible.

    I don't know what the hospital side looks like but the administration portion is a mess. There are grumblings by doctors that they feel disrespected by administration.

    Cons

    - Expect layoffs in 2014:
    Compensation to health systems by the ACA, CC and Medicare is going WAY down. Upper management has done what it could to mitigate (so they say) but CEO already told management that nobody is safe. The motto of "no layoffs" is no longer true.

    - No flexibility, culture of bullying & backstabbing that is condoned by HR:
    No flexibility in terms of start time, hours, lunches etc. You are forced to clock in and out for everything you do at the same time each day. You should expect to be tracked/followed and reported on behind your back to HR by fellow employees and even directors.

    - Your opinion doesn't matter. Non-technical personnel hired into technical positions:
    Most directors across IT/Marcom/Web Center do not care what you think so don't bother voicing it. On top of that, technical departments have non-technical directors making all decisions.

    - Scary HR / Marcom propraganda:
    You are force fed how Scripps is a "Great Place to Work". It's a scam - anybody with any quantitative research experience knows that the "survey" results are manipulated in favor of a higher score so they can receive this award each year. Also, the CEO is apparently christ incarnate - everything he says and touches is the word of god.

    - Future of IT & Web Center is grim. Best practices? Don't expect to follow them here:
    Vendors have access to all production environments including patient data. Their primary EMR, GE Centricity, is so old and unstable that it's only used by 5 clients across the entire country and won't meet government requirements for ACA. Patient portal is unstable and has a scary number of security, usability and customer service issues.

    - Low pay, career ending, old power-wielding employees don't enjoy change:
    Expect to receive a 15-30% cut in compensation for this market. Many employees have a mentality that Scripps is their career destination. Guess what, you have to appease these people in order to get into their good graces. They don't like change.

    -Overall:
    This health system is rapidly descending downhill in 2014 with regards to their IT and web technology as well as compensation, time off, and general work environment & culture. Please don't make the worst decision of your life.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, hire TECHNICAL people to make TECHNICAL decisions. Fire incompetent people
