    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.

    Advice to Management

    Standards are more important that money

    I have been working at Loma Linda University (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Caring atmosphere and good people work at Loma Linda in the healthcare field. Employees are very friendly and thoughtful to each other. Loma Linda does wonderful things for employees, such as giveaways during open enrollment, lunches to show appreciation for jobs well done and free memberships to their health & fitness center. They treat long-term employees (such as myself) as family and do wonderful things for their employees during the holiday season.

    Cons

    Human Resources does not follow through on problems or questions you have as an employee. Reps do not answer their phones and do not return your calls. If you have a problem with anything HR-related, even if it relates to benefits, you will make numerous calls and get no results.

    You cannot advance in the clerical field if you are not a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. I understand their reasoning but there is definitely a feeling that you are an outsider, and Loma Linda is now too large to continue with this practice. Talented employees are not able to advance. In addition, many departments have long-term managers who have been in their positions too long and are no longer productive.

    Raises are based on longevity and not performance.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look through individual departments and weed out the dinosaurs who are using their time at work to receive a paycheck. There are many and it should be a topic of discussion. Members of the Adventist church are some of the worst offenders. HIPAA rules are not always followed and are opening you up to expensive lawsuits. Too much gossiping goes on within departments and no one is held accountable. The yearly evaluations by employees of their managers/departments are useless. Managers are able to find out who submitted poor evaluations.
