    Pros

    Great place to work, supportive administration and management. Generally speaking we tend to serve an uninsured patient population who are grateful and really benefit from the care offered. There are also specialists (MDs) and cutting edge procedures offered that bring in another group of patients who have insurance. Working at a teaching hospital there is a great energy and progressive, evidenced based mind set.

    Cons

    The cafe food and parking.

    Advice to Management

    More parking spots. Hire a cafe company that offers more diversity and healthier options.

    I have been working at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was great opportunity to work for Hospital. I learned and participated and experience, role of IT in hospital environment. I was part of system upgrade, integration of medical application with IT section. Customer services interaction with medical staff, doctors, nurses, health care management. Patent Care was always goal.
    Working experience with HIPAA compliance.

    Cons

    Very Hectic and many surprises. Since it is patent care, IT has to be on alert all the time. If system goes down, you have to work till it is fixed, that leads to cannot plan any thing personal time.

    Advice to Management

    More training and share experiences with team.
