    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.
