    Pros

    Great network, great team, amazing spiritual wholeness, lovely facilities, diverse team. I never have felt so connected as I have being apart of the team here.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes a long time to work around a seemingly small problem. Committees and meeting take a long time to make decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone is together.

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a teaching hospital so you learn a lot. Most of the people are really nice. Working here looks good on your resume because it's a level 1 trauma center.

    Cons

    You work tooo hard and they don't pay well enough. People don't stay so they have a high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    You need to consider bumping up the pay rates. We are not even in the 50th percentile.

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a committed focus to wholeness, which includes being healthy, not working past sundown on Friday or on the weekends and an emphasis on the whole person. For me, this includes an emphasis on my spiritual side. Being a faith-based institution, I appreciate that we are guided by a higher mission to continue the teaching and healing ministry of Jesus.

    Cons

    While we emphasize personal wholeness, many people wear too many hats and work very hard. This is true for a lot of places, but with a wholeness focus, LLU could be a little better about "practicing what we preach." Overall, GREAT place to work.

    Pros

    Good working environment with highly professionals personals

    Cons

    Loma Linda University pays very little to their employees and less often your work is recognized by the University. One big issue with this organization that if you're not SDA then most likely you well experience some kind of discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Try to avoid conflict situations especially with your coworkers.

    I worked at Loma Linda University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great clinical experience, good case work.

    Cons

    If you do not fit within their little bubble they will not only treat you like crap but will do it with a smile on their faces. people were purposely going out of their way to sabotage any chance I had to get hired on there, all because I didn't fit within their idea of what a perfect human/ employee should be, maybe they were threatened by me and my innovative ideas but that's no excuse. I was there to learn not there to be put in super dangerous situations with a preceptor who just walked out of the room or sat in the corner and was no where to be found if I happened to have a Question. luckily I am very adaptable and know how to handle myself otherwise it could of been very bad for all parties involved.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the bitter old dinosaurs that are not open to new ideas, and listen to peoples ideas on how to fix problems instead of just saying "how do we fix this" and not doing anything about it when someone tries to show/ tell you why you are having the problems you are.

    Pros

    The university offers really good benefits. Faculty have access to many activities related to wholeness such as the Drayson center

    Cons

    There are often political issues that allow students to get away with mediocre work. Most colleagues are pleasant.

    Standards are more important that money
