    I worked at Loma Linda University full-time

    Pros

    Good people who genuinely enjoyed their work. Overall, very positive environment with motivated people. The organization tries to be very community-oriented, i.e. giving back to the community, helping people in the community, and you can work on interesting projects that support the local neighborhood.

    Cons

    Being that it's connected to a church system, you may hear about church-related politics (not any one specific church, but the U.S. Adventist church system as a whole). This may be a con for some.

    I worked at Loma Linda University part-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    People are usually friendly and supportive. Since I work for an academic setting, things are more laid back compared to the medical center.

    Cons

    Parking can be difficult at the university. Since it's a relatively small school, it seems like everybody knows about everyone's business.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes management can be very slow, like with the whole hiring process or just business in general.

    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.
